Lurk The Blue Crawfish by Martin Bland's Randomised Control Trials

Here's another RCT track. This one features Oregon poet Jarold Ramsey's haiku about a crawfish that he caught for his kids which proceeded to eat all the other creatures in the tank. I gather they had to toss poor old Lurk back into the Genesee River.
I programmed a lot of silence into this one (12 seconds for each musical phrase) so as to try and create a series of miniatures within the larger framework of the piece. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
