Composed by Daniel Dorff

Duration: c. 9'
Walking down a busy and diverse street can be quite a varying experience at different times of day. People change, moods change, our paces and focus change, and what we notice and linger on changes, even though the buildings remain the same.
9 Walks down 7th Avenue treats its cluster of thematic ideas in the same way. It is built like a theme and variations and may sound like a rondo, but it's really a series of nine shapings of the opening kaleidoscopic rush of contrasting ideas, much like a series of walks down New York's 7th Avenue.
