The title of this piece is a pun on the mathematical 'algorithm' - a problem solved in a finite, patterned number of steps. Algorithms are also used in computer programming. Mixed meters, plenty of 8th note patterns, syncopations and interesting harmonies create a digital, 'algorhythmic' feel to this work. A unique selection for your next concert. (3:40)
