Work Overview

Evans, S.J., The Drunkard's Walk: Steps 1, 3, 5 and 11 is a 33-minute musical composition for large ensemble. Steps 1, 3 and 5 are published on the Monash Art Ensemble CD "Here Now Hear" (FMR CD 552-0519). Monash Art Ensemble, directed by Paul Grabowsky, is a large ensemble that encourages innovation through commissioning, recording and performing new Australian works. Experienced professionals play alongside young performers to develop excellence in young Australian musicians. The composition is a response to the book 'The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives' (Mlodinow 2008). Stochastic and behavioural phenomena described in the book provide a rich source for the compositional and improvisatory processes used to develop the work. New techniques for conceptualising, notating and realising the relationship between composition and improvisation were developed using fully notated music, graphic elements, game play, and verbal instructions.
