Back presents a fibonacci sequence as an initial pallette of temporal options along side several restrictions which reveal multiple paths into timbral and rhythmic choices for the performers to make.
anteroom has decided to remain true to the implied instruction of the title by selecting numbers from the fibonacci sequence which increase in magnitude; additionally the options of using the numbers as a system of counting, and repeated striking of percussion instruments were chosen.
The resulting experience for the performers was that of particular cognitive interest. Throughout the performance a silent tempo, agreed upon by visual cues and faith, was sounding within our imaginations as well as the two tempos being performed on our instruments for the audience. While the audience may have experienced Reichian phasing of two tempos, the performers were experiencing phasing occuring on a third intellectual level, making the piece particularly difficult and interesting to perform.
