GT2 is composed entirely of vocal utterances, deliberately left unprocessed except for a few discrete micro-variations in pitch. Technology plays a nontransformational role in the profile of the musical material; it functions instead as the fundamental tool in the creation of a virtual ensemble whose physiognomy and autistic precision would be distorted if recreated by other means. Thus the piece has suggested the appellation "computer-assisted acoustic music". As such, it is a sort of excursion into the known territory of musique concrete. But still hidden in this broader realm, an infinite variety of worlds rich with diversity flourish in miniature, still unexhausted. Perhaps this is a brief vision of one such land.
