Bastion is another word for castle, specifically pertaining to the group “Castle Of Our Skins”. The “sui generis” part of the title was initially for it being a solo unaccompanied work; however, sui generis also means unique, in a class by itself and in regards to creative arts, for artistic works that go beyond conventional genre boundaries. Sui Generis Bastion displays a rounded progressive form. The musical events stem from extended playing techniques such as extreme high registers, extensive use of natural harmonics and multi layering effects with sul ponticello on fast note ostinato passages playing in the high register on top of the tail motive of the opening melody performed with double stops in the lower register.
