Scores for Individual players in A Contest is Eminent

February 16, 2006 at 05:21 | Posted in <i>A Contest is Eminent, communicative media, Documentation of things, Performances/Exhibitions, Process oriented explanations, Things related to John Cage | Leave a comment

So far these are the people that I know are playing: Zach M. (player1), Nelson H. (player2), Greg L. (player3), Melissa D. (player4), Adam P. (player5), and Zack J (player6).

Thus, I have six scores here on this page.

If other people are interested in playing, then those people should contact me so that I can prepare a score for them.

Key:

(The following symbols, which are used in the score, represent the volume setting for each instance of sound. Their values are relative in relation to the space in which the composition is performed: if the composition is performed in a busy park then the dynamic values should be adjusted accordingly, and likewise if the composition is performed in a public library.)

BA: This stands for Barely Audible. The player should focus on making their sound-source ride the fence between audible and inaudible. Do not be afraid about slipping into inaudibility. Picture, if you will, a one foot voice.

Q: This stands for Quiet. The player should focus on keeping the sound audible, but its presence should not be forwardly noticeable, also the player should not slip into inaudibility. Picture, if you will, a three foot voice.

A: This stands for Audible. The player should take care in not letting their sound source become intrusive. Although the sound should be audible, it should also be ignorable. Picture, if you will, a five foot voice.

>A: This stands for Barely Louder than Audbile. The player should at no point overwhelm the other sounds, or encompass the space with their sound source. This dynamic range should not be read as “as loud as I want.” This dynamic range falls far short of garnering all attention within the space. Picture, if you will, a clearly perceptible five foot voice in a room of five foot voices.

Brief Explanation:

Let’s look at player one’s first instance of sound to see what the score actually means. Player one’s first instance of sound is: 16’52” A. This means that for 16’52” player one will produce a sound with a dynamic value of audible as described above.

More specifics for A Contest is Eminent

The entire possible group of players(45) is divided into nine groups of five:

Group One:
Players 1,10,19,28,37

Group Two:
Players 2,11,20,29,38

Group Three:
Players 3,12,20,30,39

Group Four:
Players 4,13,21,31,40

Group Five:
Players 5,14,22,32,41

Group Six:
Players 6,15,23,33,42

Group Seven:
Players 7,16,24,34,43

Group Eight:
Players 8,17,25,35,44

Group Nine
Players 9,18,26,36,45

The groups are organized for dynamic reasons. Each group will follow the same temporal dynamic shifts.

The dynamic states are:

Barely Audible

Quiet

Audible Within the Sonic Context of the Location

Barely Louder Than Audbile

Any type of group instruction applies only to those portions that contain sound. The group settings are applied sequentially regardless of the order of the cells. The group settings will work differently for each player within the group i.e.; player one’s first sound cell is 16’52” of sound (cell A), and player ten’s first sound cell is 1’32” of sound (cell K)

Here are the notations for each player. Please bring a stopwatch so that you can properly time your individual notations. It is neccessary that erach player have their own stopwatch, as each player’s notation is different:

Let ‘O’=sound, and “i”=silence. The composition is divided into twenty-three sections as denoted by the letters A-W.
