things whole and not whole

I’ve been working with Basel Sinfonietta and conductor Manuel Nawri over the past few weeks as they prepared for the first performances of the orchestra piece I made for them, things whole and not whole. The piece uses rules pertaining to bird flocking, building on research by Craig Reynolds in the 1980s. The players set up chains of interdependent cues, and have to source all the sounds themselves, based on specific criteria. The rest of the programme included new pieces by Tim Parkinson, Michael Parsons, Jürg Frey, and Christian Wolff. Here are some pictures of the rehearsal in Basel:
