CCAR17 (Accompanying Rite)

This item is not in the library — it is a part of: C. Cardew (ed.), Nature Study Notes (full, 1969).

At a signal all players commence playing a continuous accompaniment. As the spirit moves them, individual players rise and play solos. After soling, rest. After resting, play more accompaniment (the same as before or different). Cease playing at a signal.
Definition: An accompaniment is music that allows a solo — in the event of one being played — to be appreciated as such.
