In Progress, the same journey is taken twice. At the beginning all is active,dense and "pitched". Gradually "unpitched" sounds enter the web and the density thins. From a midpoint of silence the progress is reversed until a new equilibrium is attained. At this point the opening progression is enacted 'fortissimo' to the end. Progress is dedicated to Jan Williams.
