"Dark Matter Facticity." For Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Sax and Percussion.

"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.
