Composer note: The title is from an interview I heard with a scientist
who was commenting on how the standard model of cosmology is constructed of
variables that seem fine-tuned to support our existence; if they were to
deviate a little one way or the other, the physical universe as we know it
wouldn't exist, and neither could we.
In this light, we can understand ecosystemic compositions
both as creating a sonic universe for us, but also as depending upon the
physical behavior of sound in a space in order to exist at all, that is to say,
sound as they do.
The performance of this piece will be subject to the
variables of the performance space, which will mediate the performers sonic
input, and the composition's ultimate existence as sound will be determined by
the sonic influence of the space on the musical decisions of the performers.
Performance directions are embedded in the Kyma timeline.
