Splash Screen

This piece springs from two separate ideas I had for some time: a dynamically changing score that could start and and end with any of the material, and the idea of an instrument whose sound is affected by one performer while being played by another. These two ideas are reflected in the form and techniques respectively.

The piece consists of four sections and five transitionary materials, the former of which can be ordered by the performers’ preference. The transitionary materials must be played in a certain order before and after each section, giving the piece both a mobile/variable form and an aspect of developmental linearity.
