A chance piece with mallets. There’s a lot of possible ways this piece could end up. But the form should cause an overall growth in density of sound, because the availibility of ‘larger rest’ elements. Because of the number of elements played, and the spacing of the larger rest areas, there will be a general increase in sound in the middle of piece and less at the ends. the first ring has more silence than sound. Based on the number of elements played on each ring, 2nd ring 50% of the elements will be mostly rests. 3rd ring – 20%. 4th ring- 16%.
So an overall arc of sound density, with performers picking their own tempos and settings- the floor, their lap, their shoes. Being performed March 7th.
