For a Plurality of Sound Systems (Buchla200e, Radio, Tape Recorder, Max/MSP) Score available at Edition Peters

The score is made of symbols printed on transparent plastic sheets, the symbols set the number of available and possible sound systems (a sound system is made of speakers, generators and components such as filters, modulators, amplifiers). The symbols are dropped on a white sheet painted with a straight black line. The axis of each symbol states whether the component or generator must change or stand still (% of amount of change). Some changes are done manually, some other are made by control voltage. Amplification and surround pan are controlled (following the score) by max/MSP.

Recorded in binaural simulation, use headphones.
