Topology (contriving balance)

By Andrew C. Smith


Topology (contriving balance) is connected; the performers listen to one another to find their points. This series of phrases outlines a set of pitches that may be tuned with one or two steps from an open string of the violin, and explores this set intuitively. It and its companion piece, Topology (phases of this difference), are forthcoming on a double LP release on Index. The subtitles are stolen from Wallace Stevens.
