The four movements of this piece do not follow a specific musical structure
or form. It is rather a ‘stream of consciousness’ in an audiovisual sense.
The primary tool for this composition was Motion Graphic Notation (MGN).
MGN is defined by the following six principles:
Universal Validity - the score needs to
work for audience, acoustic instruments
and live electronics alike.
Transparency - the actions of the
performers have to be understandable
for the audience watching the score.
Time-Based Media - the score uses
exclusively time-based media like
video and animation.
Sustainability and Definiteness - the score
seeks a definite, recognizable and
reproducible form of communicating
Usability - the score provides an easy-
to-use interface for musical purposes.
Comprehensibility - the score is
understandable and applicable only by
using these six principles.
