Surgical bypass is not a cure for aortoiliac occlusive disease.
The blockages may be so severe that the your feet hurt even when lying down (rest pain), or wounds develop on your legs because of lack of blood flow.
AN AORTOFEMORAL BYPASS is the placement of a graft connecting your aorta and one of both femoral arteries in your pelvis to bypass a diseased vessel and increase blood flow to your legs.
Indeed the work is in many ways about the notion of the solo and related traditional concerto models, drawing on fairly simple, formal roles and relationships—all of the instrumental behaviours in the piece can be reduced to either solo, duet, cadenza (both notated and improvised), accompaniment (again incorporating improvisational components), or refrain, with these roles superimposed and juxtaposed in fluid, shapeshifting recombinations.
That process of recombination is central to the form of the work, in which solos and small chamber groupings emerge and dissolve, flittering between independent solos & cadenzas and dependent, contingent ensemble formations, the membrane between leading and following or soloing and accompanying always porous and pliable.
