'scatter/spark' starts with a bang.
And from there it becomes a completely different piece with each and every performance.
Each instrument is given an individual part with repeated musical cells. Performers can choose to repeat cells as often as they would like. They can choose to skip cells. Once they move on from a cell they cannot go back.
The work finds its way through memories of older works that I've adapted into this piece. They are fluid memories, different each and every time.
