Asynchronisms for solo viola (2008) was a set of short studies that were loosely based on some performance aspect and/or various contrapuntal textures of Bach's unaccompanied suites. The harmonic materials are generated from pentatonic and octatonic scale forms and, therefore, do not overtly resemble the music of Bach. The set of four brief exercises were first premiered in the Merkin Concert Hall of the Kaufman Center in New York on Monday, May 19, 2008, by violist, Nancy Steffa.
