Symphony of Episodes (2005)
(for an Audience of One)

from Symbiotica (a cross-cultural mixup)

(symphonic segments from Luciano Berio, Pierre Boulez, John Cage, Elliott Carter, Charles Ives, Olivier Messiaen, Anton Webern, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Edgar Varese) 

The music consists of a single recorded track containing a variety of symphonic episodes by many of the leading musical voices of the 20th-21st century. The original track, containing a random distribution of orchestral samples, was separated into short segments, naturally bounded by silences. The segments were numbered, then recombined independently of one another, with little or no separation of silence between them. The music represents a synthesis of 20th century musical thought and expression.

To the first track, I then added a second track containing original electronic sounds.
