about

For years I've been fascinated with the idea of stasis in musical form. "Entropy" is an exploration of one aspect of this structurally.
All 5 pieces are based on the same set of repeating patterns that slow over time proportionally to the original rhythmic pattern of the patterns until each note's time value has increased to up to 64 measures.
a unified basic tonality is used on most parts to slightly obscure the individual patterns and put focus more on the whole of the internal movement than the individual themes.

If you are inspired to sing along you probably have a good idea of what you would enjoy. If you need a small bit of guidance for your vocalization, screaming while rolling down a steep hill in a 50 gallon oil drum strikes me as being entirely appropriate.
