A character piece, Fracture combines pre-recorded and processed acousmatic sounds resembling water and coins with a piano and drum duet to examine and explore jazz influenced idioms of jazz harmony and rhythm. Through the course of the piece, the recorded elements merge with and eventually envelop and overwhelm the acoustic instruments. Fractured was later orchestrated and became Spatter.
