Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.
You will also get the composition map, a dymaxified musical timeline that charts the entire 60-minute work. Follow the yin yang from left to write as it connects the individual books of the Tao Te Jing with the musical segments they inspired. Listen closely and you can hear the words in the music.
The Way is a 60-minute continuous work for The Dymaxion Quartet. It is a musical realization of 13 books from Stephen Mitchell's translation of the Tao Te Jing. It is also a musical palindrome, working its way through various key centers, tempos, and themes to a central piece, then back through them in reverse order to come full circle.
