"Material Agency and Indeterminacy as Musical Structure"
Composing ‘with' unstable sounds; a post-Cagean framework. My practice explores the behaviours of musical instruments (any vibrating objects really) in their unstable zones of sound production, devising ways to identify behavioural hierarchies, and strategies to compose within them. This seminar will examine several of my recent works as composing along instruments' "contours of material agency”, framing the discussion with Andrew Pickering’s concept of Material Agency, and Jane Bennett’s Vital Materialism.
