Abstract

Electroacoustic technology (the tape studio and digital synthesis and composition) has enabled the author to conceive of and execute a series of musical works (comprising a single phonograph record) that embody the archetypes and relationships found in one of the I Ching patterns of trigrams, namely the Sequence of Earlier Heaven. Although records have traditionally been regarded as preserved performances, he proposes viewing them as a compositional format. He also discusses the influence of the I Ching on the structure and imagery associated with the works on the record as well as the compositional approach found in each piece.
