Description: The work tells the tale of an African chimpanzee's capture and subsequent metamorphosis into a "cultured" Western human being. The seven instrumentalists are, to varying degrees, incorporated into the dramatic and physical action.
Length: 02:00

Musical Style: The work is built on a whole-tone row. The result is diatonic with an avoidance of chromaticism except when called for in two specific scenes to make a dramatic point. The rhythm is an important aspect of the piece, combining elements of minimalism
