I rather like the idea behind that method.  In a composition 
like particles, you literally spend half the peal chasing 
mega-tittums.  This method gets you there and back within a 
lead, and without completely losing the coursing music 
around the row.  I'd be interested to see a method like that 
in a slightly more conventional cyclic composition.
