Notes by the composer, Jeffrey Kresky:

"Through A​" has a very simple surface: an unbroken string of even eighth-notes continually bounces off a bass A - hence all the notes are experienced or mediated "through" A. The printed score looks even simpler, since the dynamics and articulations are left to the spontaneity of the performer. The piece was written for Payton MacDonald.
