A Gesture is an energy trajectory (pathway), moving from one point to another. They always move forwards and give the impression of passing time (the opposite would be texture, which is static and focuses attention on inner details). Gestures are all about movement and articulation. Sonic gestures might be made up of a few different individual parts edited together (Composite Gesture). Gesture might be contrasted with textures or might lead into, or trigger, further gestures (Multiple Gesture).
