Vestiges is a scored for metals and metallic models, with alternating sections loosely based on ferric folksongs and a large-gaited jazz standard. Underlying the folksong sections are "hank drums" tuned to overtone relationships, with equal-tempered F as fundamental (drum 1), as 7th partial (drum 2), as 11th partial (drum 3), and as 23rd partial (drum 4). In the other sections, audio clips exploit the pitch drift that naturally occurs when certain Justly Tuned chords progress with common tone linkage.
