This piece is the first in a series of collaborations with Bruce Bonnell for natural horn and live electronics (the whole project has been dubbed Supernatural). Originally performed under the title Golfballs the Size of Hail, the title Silhouettes, Receding seems to be a better fit for the mood and tone of the piece. Hectic, spastic, staccato gestures are initiated in the horn until a long and lyrical line emerges. The hectic material returns, as it is wont to do, but is beaten back into place for a subdued and introspective ending.
