Composition 2005 No. 1 (excerpt, 1 min. 50 sec.)

Two Straight Lines For La Monte Young, 2003. Installation at Diapason, Sept. 2005. This work uses twenty pages of tabular random permutations of integer numbers overlaid with systematically placed small blue dots. These pages are pinned to the wall each skewed so the blue dots produce a pair of vertical straight lines each over six feet long. The work references American composer La Monte Young's Composition 1960 No. 10 which reads "draw a straight line and follow it." The work breaks from the singular act called for by Youngâ€™s score and instead creates through repetition and serial techniques two straight lines that emerge from an infinite numeric field.
