In Aliquot - one, form, rhythm, and pitch are derived from prime numbers. The piece is in three main sections: Section 1 (beginning to letter "j") introduces various musical possibilites of the instruments; Section 2 ("j" to "s") is a sort of "riff contest"; and Section 3 ("s" to the end) presents the different psychological states of the performer(s) based on the outcome of Section 2.
