23 May Discontinuous Probability Fields #1-4
Discontinuous Probability Fields 1 – 4 were written in 1993. My intention was to shun expression, narrative or rhetoric, instead presenting and dissecting a sound world in a static, non-directional way.
Hence the title: “fields” are the areas in which arbitrarily-chosen materials (discrete, narrowly-limited
values of pitch, dynamic, and duration) are manipulated, according to a randomly-changing,
discontinuous probability. The resulting surfaces are locally unpredictable and discontinuous, but the net result is a distinct, highly-focused identity for each piece.
