On Lawrence Halprin

Scores are symbolizations of processes which extend over time” (RSVP CYCLES, 1)… while this is hardly gives a concrete image of scoring, it begins to find clarity in examples of application. Halprin notes that scores include not just musical or movement notation, but are actually omnipresent in our society. A grocery list is a score; so is a calendar, an almanac, a cave etching. They express through symbols (characters/ assigned notations) something larger, more meaningful than the symbol itself. Halprin saw this practice as highly suggestive of a design methodology which related more to process, deep involvement, and an activated collective than most design practice, which was result-oriented and didn’t consider more meaningful, non-static elements in design.

this way of composing is to suggest a set of rules and conditions, which are actually the piece of music, and then an individual performance is one possible outcome of those rules and conditions

it is a complex system that grows


Steve reich – Phasing

starting in unison and slowly going out of phase, which is really a variation of the old western technique of canon

you have a piece of melodic material which is played against itself but displaced rhythmically. so everything is coming out of one module or melody, but its rhythmic displacement causes this canon to happen.

the idea of a voice going against the same voice, in the same timbre

applying phasing to later works:
