Grafts is a piece in three parts that expands upon the virtual processing technique heard in A 480, however, the works of Grafts differ in that they contain significantly more unaltered multi-instrumental part writing weaved in counterpoint to stems of the una corda, and are thus hybrid in nature. Each sound and melody is performed by the fingers and wrists through b/w keyboard input, split up to four ways, then re-pitched and re-woven through a band-and-forth grafting procedure of layering and securing on a four-channel processor. End arrangements are derived from pitch-shited stems called "scrubs." "Scrubbing" is the process of creating a sound (out of a sound) not for existence of the sound itself, but for it to be completed by others which surround it. Tonal structures are constructed by stacking interdependent layers of shelved frequencies (rather than equal tempered pitches) to produce frequentially-terraced composites of scrub-based melodies and arrangements.
