"Analogous to a Synthetic Geology" 

for Three Voices

 (each with Altitonant Devices hung above the performers and manipulated by a controller).

Bil Smith Composer. (2014). 

Performance and composition made possible by the kind support of Blaupunkt GmbH.

If what I write sometimes is too much to absorb, which I have been challenged about in my writing, let's think about breaking this down. 

Let's focus on one point here..."truth value". 

Where is our 'station' when we create music? 

Must it be relevant? 

What defines our ability or inability to induce new syntactic musical messages?

"Johannes Kreidler: Disruptor"


Johannes Kreidler is documenting a vast assortment of graphic music scores on his essential new music blog:


http://www.kulturtechno.de/   

Don't miss his music either.  He is a disruptively, radical thinker.  He has a game changing mind set which is evocative and essential.

This is an important catalog for all interested in finding a different voice in compositional construction.

Many of these scores, I have not been exposed to and I have been sharing them with others from his postings.  This is great work and a unique service and gesture to all of us interested in our unique path of musical endeavors.

"Different Phenomena; The Luminous Dragon-Green Sea" (2014) Bil Smith Composer.




"Different Phenomena; The Luminous Dragon-Green Sea" (2014) Bil Smith Composer.
For Orchestra, Guitar, Mezzo-Soprano, Alpha Spheres, and Audio Cubes.
Compositional structure based on W.V.O. Quine's theories of Holophrastic indeterminacy, or "indeterminacy of musical performance translation". This is one of two kinds of indeterminacy of performance interpretation to appear in his writings.
