Forms 6 Trio

Forms 6 Trio: A composition for an ensemble of any number of players. Each player writes down what they would (hypothetically) play in an improvisation, within a given time frame. They are to consider relationships between players, forms of response, intentions, mistakes, dead ends, pauses and so on. And then the written pages are passed to the left for the next player to play as a text score and so on. The piece can be halted before everyone has played each page but it's better if everyone plays each page once. In this version we recorded the writing stage and a version where we read the texts within the same time frame of 15 minutes.
