Description

In this work, a sense of active stasis is achieved through the arbitrary but explicit temporality of closely but irregularly concatenated sonic events, each player operating autonomously, any apparent coordination no more than a chance occurrence. In preparation, each player constructs a catalogue of 15 distinct, primarily unpitched sonic events, each event corresponding to a single node in each player’s respective notational aggregate. When the attack cursor reaches a node, the corresponding event is activated by the player. The duration of the piece is arbitrarily practical.

Additional Information

Study no. 48 [catalog1] was composed by Ryan Ross Smith and performed as part of Anime, Concert 3 of the Scale Variable 2015 series, at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts on 5 September 2015.
