"Dark Matter Facticity"
For Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Sax and Percussion
The ‘orchestration of futurity’ that will allow ‘the future of composition to be thought of
as a game of chance’ brings into play a set of assumptions whose provenance is a bizarre mix of stereotyped curves, flying bombs, and kicking horses.
Here probability figures not as incomplete knowledge, but as a supplementary construction that requires a ‘leap of faith’—a ‘cocktail’ of knowledge and generic idealization that is necessary in order to make indeterminacy go ‘live’ as an effective machine-part.
