individual objects (2009)

Recently I have written a series of pieces that are concerned in one way or another with the presentation of unique, and yet similar, events or objects. For example, in fifty objects (2007, for ensemble) I made a sequence of unique musical objects that are closely related; forty objects (2007, for 40 electric guitars) has 40 independent parts; and in over 5000 individual works (2007, for piano) a single performance, or individual work, is one of 5040 versions of the piece.

individual objects, was commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra as part of UBS Soundscapes: Pioneers, and first performed at the Barbican Centre, London, 26 October 2010.
