In early 1968, Michael obtained permission from Creeley to take his two poems The Pattern and Dimensions in a new direction. Creeley's poetry is difficult to set musically. It is frequently dense with complicated meanings, often running together. The Pattern is based solely on Creeley's reading of the poem and the entire piece consists of manipulations of his reading using the standard magnetic tape manipulations of the day: slowing down, speeding up, splicing, backwards playback and overlay. Of particular happenstance is the fugato on the line "let X equal X, X also equals X" morphing into the word "sex." In Dimensions, Creeley's narration occurs over and through the dense texture. His voice blends into a mangled and distorted free improvisation on cello and percussion.
