Work Overview

spA-C--E has the aim of exploring 'Art Music' through Indeterminacy in Notation, Improvisation, Acoustic Instruments with Electronics & Sampling.
The pieces have 'structure' as in a composition, with core musical ideas suggested for development through improvisation. The player has the freedom to choose some of these ideas, develop their own ideas, or to go beyond... spA-C--E may be performed with or without the 'space feed' i.e.MIDI triggered samples.
