I Found it in the Woods describes the progressive weathering of a theme built out of found musical objects (the first two chords, for example, are taken out of a passage in Brahms’s A major violin sonata). The piece would ideally be performed outside (though this might require amplification).
recorded by Mateusz Zechowski in Sudler Hall, Yale University.
