"Indirect Reflections" is a four-channel electro-acoustic composition. I explore in it the advantages that electronic composition offers to the music for dance. Specifically, I have been focusing on the possibility of "fixed freedom" in the treatment of meter and rhythm, and on the use of sound spatialization. With respect to the latter, I have employed the gradual shift of location of individual sound sources as well as relocation between discrete points.
The reference score presented here was prepared after the piece was complete. It reflects the music events, but does not define them. The audio version is the primary source. Due to the nature of electronic composition, and to the flexible treatment of the meter and rhythm, standard notation would not be adequate. I chose notational style appropriate for each movement. Rhythmic values are sometimes unspecified, in other cases there may be approximate and not to scale.
