Walking down a busy, diverse city
street can be quite a varying experience at different times of day. The people
change, the moods change, our paces and focus change, and what we notice and
linger on changes, even though the structures remain the same.
9 WALKS DOWN 7TH
AVENUE treats its cluster of thematic ideas in the same way. It is built
similarly to a theme and variations and may sound like a rondo, but it's
really a series of 9 different shapings of the opening kaleidoscopic rush of
contrasting ideas, much like a series of walks down New York's 7th Avenue.
