Beside Oneself

Beside Oneself for viola and live electronics

Most people think what could I do, I think what shouldn't I do. What I should do perhaps is involved with the fact that I'm Jewish and what is known as Jewish paranoia. I don't feel comfortable enough to feel that everything is on my side and that it's going to work just the way I want it.
--Morton Feldman

3. ME Sings His Narcissistic Canon
4. ME Sings His Greatest Song
5. ME Speaks to the Crowd.
6. ME Speaks to His Prompter
7. ME Is Cast Into the Future and Dies
