This work is similar to the main movement of my opus 91 Night Hawk for trumpet and organ. I wrote it as if it were for solo horn with tape loop delay. Instead what I have done is plotted out the solo horn part plus three echoes and given the solo player all attacks generated by the four part fugue. I used grace notes when ever two notes would have happen at once, dynamic contrasts help define the echoes.
