Nikko Wolverine (1999) is a three-movement piece scored for various bowed and struck metal instruments in non-tempered tunings. These instruments, which were designed and built by the composer, emit tones that are rich in complex harmonics and often sound more electronic than acoustic. All three movements of this work share motivic materials, but each successive movement adds more harmonic complexity and textural density to the movement that preceded it.

Tons Tons Macoutes (1999) is a texturally dense work for Smith’s metal instruments. It is almost glacial in both its presence and its pace, and it might call to mind certain musique concrete works.

Genus, Sho-Bud and the hymn-like Near the Divide, both composed in 1999, feature the composer on pedal-steel guitar. The first of these works utilizes a highly processed sound and unfolds through series of harmonic suspensions. The second utilizes a more traditional pedal-steel sound—both in timbre and in style. Both works progress at a very leisurely pace.
