stutter-step the concept is part of an approach to sonic creativity that I have variously termed “minimalist complexity” or “energetic sculpture.”  This piece is constructed as a dynamic musical object that eschews narrative and discursive modes of listening in favor of a more plastic approach to sound.  I imagine this piece as a baroquely detailed physical object which is slowly rotating, exposing its many aspects. Its title is taken from a CL Smooth lyric.
