NOTES
String Vectors I is a piece conceived as a series of sonic ideas outlining the organization of time. Each player in the string ensemble is a soloist, and performs and interacts with the musical material by themselves making individual decisions in their performance — what material to play, when to begin playing it, how long to play that material, and when to end playing. These choices are made “on the spot” in real time, so that no player knows of or is coordinating with any other player within the group. Within that time, the sonic elements are revealed and bloom and fade organically, and through spontaneity and chance allow the work to unfold.
