About the work

Blueprint (ii) is a ‘nearly-rondo’ consisting of a recurring Statement and three Episodes.

The form of the piece is a Statement – Episode 1 – Statement – Episode 2 – Episode 3 – Statement.

First Performance: CoMA London Ensemble, Spitalfields Festival, June 1995

Technical notes

This piece is a backbone from which the players themselves generate the musical material. Easily understood instructions are provided. About four rehearsals would be required.
