A constant stream of people follow the perimeter of the performance space humming notes that have been given to them as they enter the space. The harmony gradually changes as people exit and re-enter with new tones. The progression of people alludes to the trajectory of planets around the sun or cells of blood around the body. Each page of the score is set out on a sequence of individual cards kept in a box. Each card contains a specific musical tone. As each singer takes a card they sing this tone as they walk around the perimeter of the performance space.
Instrumentation: Variable number of voices male and femaie, trained or untrained. A recommendation for the number of voices would be between 50 and 200 or more.
First performance: 2007. First performed at MassMoCA USA
