it depends on the piece. one began with squares - which i saw on a train
when people opened and shut the windows of the train.

then again, the final piece had sod all to do with that.

late 14th-early 15th century Flemish and French music - the Ars
Subtilior. ultimate complexity to the point where beat becomes beatless
- pure fluidity. you can do two things with complex beats - chopping and
cropping - as in Stravinsky and drum'n'bass (although i'd argue some of
that is Ars Subtilior fluidity too).

literature: "Medieval and Renaissance Music - A Performers Guide" -
Timothy J. McGee.

learn how to read the true emphases of the words and the fluidity of
line, where beats cross one another in as complex a manner as
Ferneyhough, but 5 centuries earlier.

>if you were doing an aleotoric piece / soundscape / standard notation ?

at the moment i'm remixing a piece of underground electronica as a
musical soundscape. shapes, growing triangles (crescendi) - chopped up
chaos and finally LOUD. dunno where the rest comes in but it'll sure
have some Ars Subtilior in there somewhere - actually it already does.

silence is not wrong. silence is peace. silence is the only time my
tired manic brain can rest, catch up... i listen to silence at home to
rest my mind, and i'm probably breaching Cage's copyright. who gives a
flying sh*te. fair use..... ;p

tha mC of eminem, never forget the music.
music is not 'product' - product is something you put in your hair.

cups of tea to ya.

Lose yourself in the music, the moment, you own it, you better never let it go,
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow this opportunity comes once in a lifetime.
