In the nervous system, a synapse is a structure that permits a neuron (or nerve cell) to pass an electrical or chemical signal to another neuron or to the target effector cell (Wikipedia).
The main subject of my work “Synapse” is “explosive octaves”. The beginning expresses a raw ore, so to speak. Then an eruption of repeated notes. Its fragments act as a gigantic precursor and signal…. And sobbing transfiguration follows. From the resulting whirlwind, a melody emerges.

This eBook is now available (complete audio file attached): studio recording by Edward Cohen, pf.
