about

The Complexification project explores musical complexity through a collaborative process based on a set of rules:

1. Make a short, simple piece of music.
2. Swap copies of the pieces with the other person.
3. Modify the given piece to make it more complex (the given piece must be used, but it can be transformed in any way, and new sounds may be added).
4. IF the result is more complex (as agreed by both participants), GOTO 2, otherwise HALT.

In this project, complexity is understood in terms of the quantity and variety of musical elements or patterns. The result is two parallel threads of music, each representing a progression of increasing complexity.

For a detailed breakdown of this project, see entracte.co.uk/E187.pdf
