Urban Sprawl grew directly from the composer's months-long search for a new home. In looking over many prospects, he began to wonder about the variety of home owners and their approaches to their wildly different dwellings, resulting in this "funky, jazzy, kitschy, and hopefully fun ode," as he describes it. Duration: 6'30".
