In Confluence, freewheeling inventions for violin and piano flow through the same shared harmonies: registrally fixed pitch structures,
or tableaux, inspired by the ideas of Mel Powell. In this work, however, the tableaux do not consist of all 12 chromatic pitches, but are restricted
to between 1 and 11 pitches. The single note F, alternating arco and pizzicato, functions as both an invocation and a refrain.
