At times, the title "Reversal Processes" refers to the reversed sound of a single note, and at others it refers to the reversible roles of the pianist and electronics, and on an even nerdier level, the mathematical reversibility of the stochastic processes used to generate material throughout the piece. The electronic part is comprised almost entirely of sampled piano sounds, including plucked strings, muted strings, scraped strings, and various other extended techniques. Much of the material for this piece was taken directly from other pieces I've written over the past few years – various fragments, forms, melodies, and ideas that I was finally trying to “write out” of my system.
