For 80 instrumentalists.
Prior to performance, each player is assigned one numbered circle. Only one player should be assigned to each numbered circle.
Each numbered circle will cycle through a set of predetermined colors throughout the duration of the piece. Each color corresponds to a particular note on the treble clef staff in the center of the score. Noteheads with a small line and circle extending below it denote that the pitch is a half-step flat.
Connected to each numbered circle are 5 event nodes.
The center event node indicates that the corresponding pitch be played in-tune.
The 2 event nodes outside of the larger circle indicate that the corresponding pitch be played increasingly sharp.
The 2 event nodes inside the larger circle indicate that the corresponding pitch be played increasingly flat.
Pitches should not be more than a half-step sharp or flat.
The player plays the corresponding pitch, with its notated tuning each time one of the rotating attack cursors crosses a particular event node. Sounds should alternate between very short and fairly short.
Occasionally 2 or more attack cursors will cross in very close proximity. Do your best in these cases.
Duration: approx. 12 minutes.
