Five Dream Sequences is a 60's avant-garde work. Each performer plays from the full score, at times matching entrances.
The music is mostly unmeasured, so a conductor is necessary to indicate entrances.
The work is highly "coloristic" rather than rhythmic.
Ametric notation is used in this avant garde work. The four percussionists are required to perform on a wide variety of melodic and indefinite pitch instruments. - Boosey and Hawkes
