NOTES
A piece which continues the sonic material organization first presented in "string vectors I". It was premiered by The String Orchestra of Brooklyn, Eli Spindel director, at Roulette in Brooklyn. 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.
