bsym5.1 was originally composed for the Vox Novus 60x60 project (a collection of sixty one minute works by different composers presented in concert as a continuous one hour work.) It was included in the 2006 Midwest Mix and presented on several concerts during the year. That project was a part of the inspiration for this one.
bsym5.1 compresses the first movement of Beethoven's Symphony no.5 into sixty seconds. enjoy.
