The Computational Tablature. The Numerics Archetype

The purpose of this compositional archetype is to create a contextualized system of numerical nomenclature for category driven, modified cellos.

These systems, or ‘archetypes’ will incorporate the primary arithoretic, descriptors, variants, identifiers and sub-numeric elements of the numerical concept nomenclature.

Intra-category, many of the descriptor numeric candidates may be interchangeable with others.

The defining mathematical descriptor

process designation (primary parameters) provenance designation 
(conflicting strands and anti-crucial undercurrents)

Lodestar One. Bil Smith Composer

Where there is so much talk of liberation there are sure to be very disturbing reverberations within the world of established, acceptable criteria. The liberation of words, objects, sounds, etc., should be seen as different from the confusions surrounding the idea of making them free. They are already free, before anyone ever thinks of using them. The idea of them being liberated is relative to the use that they have been put to (and enslaved by) in the past.

They cannot be more free than they are, but they can be liberated from their conceptual inheritance, and we from ours. That is the point at which we can realize that we are already as free as words, objects, and sounds are. Everything is then free to move in all directions to all meanings.

Earle Brown, 1965
