descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Although we habitually oppose them, Chance, Discovery and Design are inextricably linked. Artists, in particular, learn to embrace serendipity while cultivating an inquisitive nature and developing the discipline to hone compelling moments out of an endless stream of complexity. Chance, Discovery and Design is at once both a highly personal work and the product of considerable local and distributed collaboration. The music flows from intimate saxophone and flute improvisations to exploratory large ensemble playing, all the while fusing electronic with acoustic sound sources and pairing human intentionality with computer interaction. The performances are set to visuals, at times mysterious and provocative, designed to enhance the music without ever overtaking it. Ultimately each selection was created through a certain synergy of unpredictable, exploratory and highly controlled gestures-through Chance, Discovery and Design."-Circumvention
