Text Structure [2016] is a structured improvisatory composition for small or large ensemble, laptop, and digital projector. The piece facilitates the organization of musical elements—i.e., pitch, duration, dynamics, timbre, texture, space, form, silence, and power, in real-time via projection of the conductor's text-based instructions. In live performances the audience receives their own text instructions.
