In order to make as few decisions as possible in regards to the sequencing of sounds, I decided to use Toshi Ichiyanagi’s score “Music for Piano #7” to decide for me. Instead of interpreting the score as a human player, I created a system on the computer that would perform the score. The system decides what sample to play, the position of playback, the order in which the samples are sequenced, the length of each sequence and how the sample's timbre is modulated. These decisions are based entirely on a Max/MSP patch's "reading" of Ichiyangi's score. Each sound source is introduced as the sample source changes.
Side A is electronic sounds.
Side B is field recordings
