"Different Phenomena; The Luminous Dragon-Green Sea" (2014) Bil Smith Composer.
For Orchestra, Guitar, Mezzo-Soprano, Alpha Spheres, and Audio Cubes
Compositional structure based on W.V.O. Quine's theories of Holophrastic indeterminacy, or "indeterminacy of musical performance translation". This is one of two kinds of indeterminacy of performance interpretation to appear in his writings.
According to Quine, "there is more than one correct method of interpreting (translating) notations where the two interpreters differ not merely in the meanings attributed to the sub-sentential parts of sounds but also in the net import of the whole composition.
It is holophrastic indeterminacy (Cage) that underlies Quine's argument against synonymy, the basis of his objections to Rudolf Carnap's analytic/synthetic distinction.
