DIFFERENT POSSIBLE VERSIONS ========

There are a number of different strategies for making a piece using this score but there are two fundementally different approaches: solosit recording multitrack tape part and live ensemble version.

SOLOIST MULTITRACKING ========

Here is a version recorded by flautist Joe O'Farrell multitracking two bass flutes and two C flutes:



SINGLE ENSEMBLE - SINGLE SCORE ========

MULTIPLE QUARTETS - MUTLIPLE SCORES ========

Also, if a director is involved the size of the ensemble may double and be divided into two groups. In this case the director can use two laptops to control two groups, each group playing different instances of the score. Here the two groups ensemble will slip in and out of phase with one another the same way as is happening internally within the individual groups. The number of groups playing from independant scores need not be limited to two. One director can manipulate as many groups as deemed appropriate for the performance - there may also be more than one director.
