limited editions (2010-)

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) and individual objects (2009, for orchestra), 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.

limited editions (2010-) is a projected series of works for various instruments. Each piece is printed on a postcard (A6) and strictly limited to a certain number of copies; once they are gone, they're gone.
