Networks by Ann Southam

Ann Southam’s ‘Networks’ consists of a series of improvisations and choices. Improvisations last one minute each, beginning on the minute and half minutes, and are organized around specified pitches (in any register). A stopwatch (in this case computer readout) helps cue beginnings and endings of improvisations.

Commissioned in 1978 by Arraymusic through the Onatrio Arts Council (revised in 1996)
