so many territories (2014)
Territories are areas ‘in which one has responsibility with regard to a particular type of activity’. so many territories comprises a set of score pages, each of which is presented as an 8 x 8 grid of short sounds. These sounds are permutations of pitches, dynamics and articulation types to create 64 unique combinations of these elements. The players work their way independently across the grids from the top left corner to the bottom right, moving either up, down, left or right and following a route of their choice. Occasional stable moments may occur. The title is taken from a Bon Iver song.
