Variations on "Deep Throat"

    Yes, the title refers to what you think.

    To the composer the psychological thriller "Deep Throat" wasn´t so exiting due to its images, but more to the underlying score.

    Variations on "Deep Throat" (double woodwind & double horn) actually are (musical) variations on the main melody of the "Deep Throat-"song.

    Not the standard melodic, harmonic & rhytmic ´classical´ variations (which are dull to the composer´s ear), but variations upon the main intervals of the "Deep Throat-"melody: thirds, diminished thirds, fifths and diminished seconds.

    The variations are preceded and concluded by an arrangement of the famous melody.
