Divide Its White Laughter into Two is a five-movement cycle for bassoon and baritone saxophone that requires stamina and patience while provoking a disturbed intuition from the performers and listeners. The apparent and not-so-apparent tensions in the piece are ever-present, desiring reconciliation through a purging that can only be attempted in live performance.
