Third movement — H to J

Following on the heels of D to H, and due to the properties of the alphabet, the piece continues on apace. This time, what it doesn't mean is Hello to Julie! And here is where the sinister jazz somehow spawns a metric modulation (I've done that before, and so have other people), a texture change (string harmonics, rising wind gestures, and some other stuff), and soon … soon … there will be a passage for piano and celesta played at the same time, no waiting.

Mwa ha ha.
