Four versions each of 2 compositions that Dahlgren and Braxton developed by drawing from a deck of cards in blocks of 26x2, which determined the recorded material.

Braxton, Anthony / Dahlgren, Chris

Braxton, Anthony / Dahlgren, Chris: ABCD (Not Two Records)
Label: Not Two Records    
Released in: Poland    

"Penumbrea for Woodwind(s) and Bass(es) is a series of 26 blocks of material to be played or taceted, forwards or backwards. The piece was composed for this duo, comprising Anthony Braxton on woodwind(s) and myself on bass(es). Along with my other Penumbrea-system compositions, Penumbrea for Woodwind(s) and Bass(es) may be viewed as building blocks to be uniquely reconfigured for every different performance/realization. In the case of the four individual Penumbras on this recording, Anthony and I each drew from a deck of playing cards, corresponding to blocks (26x2) of the composition, which determined the acutal recorded material at Weleyan. Later, living in Berlin, I used indeterminate methods as well as some personal preferences to construct the Penumbras into their present form. Thank you, AB, for inspiration, support and your incredible music (billions and billions...)."-Chris Dahlgren, 2005
