Incidental Horse Racing
This work is an exploration in aleatoric composition by utilizing chance procedures in the composition phase rather than in the performance phase of the work. A portion of data was selected, in this case horse racing data from 2010 was used and mapped onto various musical values that would appear in the work.
There are fifteen different 'modules' in the work each corresponding to one of the fifteen horses that were part of the data used in composing. Each module has a distinct character based on the non-arbitrary assignment and mappings of corresponding data from the source material.
