Episode Septième UK
Betsy Jolas - 1984

for electric guitar

Episode Septième (subtitled 'Nightaway') represents a rare foray for its composer into the world of electronic music, but is nonetheless typical of her style, making excellent use of both the instrument's melodic and colouristic capabilities. Particularly notable are the sonic transformations she obtains through filtering, as well as the beautiful effect of chords which fade in without attack.
