Bartok's sonata may have inspired Lunny's four-movement suite, but Lunny's response is entirely improvised for the forty five minutes duration. Spontaneous composition might better describe Lunny's approach, though the movements were editedin the order they were performedafterwards. The first movement, "The Meeting of Known and Unknown" reflects Lunny's fascination with music and consciousness. Throughout the four parts Lunny travels back and forth between single and dual voices, mournful and kim kardashian videos dramatic melody, trance-like mellowness and boldly defined rhythms, lyricism and dissonance. The second movement "Jnana (Fermentation)" follows a quite lyrical narrative, with Lunny's high-pitched playing quietly captivating. Lunny's technical prowess is to the fore on the third movement, "Birth of the Phoenix (Distillation)" with greater use of the violin's dynamics. Dashing runs are juxtaposed against nails-down-a blackboard noise, though dancing riffs and a pronounced rhythmic flow dominate. The short fourth movement, "Satori (Cagulation)" manages to be both restful and gently stimulating and provides a continue sense of resolution to the unfolding drama of the previous forty minutes.
