Action can define, guide and inform all aspects of compositional process and foster musical expression. For example, a circular gesture framed on a body of an instrument can suggest a pitch sequence, temporal progression and dynamic curve as well as the mode of how to notate such gesture. Gesture iterations may lead to a formation of phrases and sentences and even to a construction of an action-based musical language. Composers such as John Cage, Mauricio Kagel and Helmut Lachenmann have investigated areas of such language. Works included in this collection explore the territory of actions in the acoustic and electroacoustic domains. In the electroacoustic pieces, the physical models predominantly contribute to a creation of partnership with their physical doubles. Physical modeling syntheses, in fact form an excellent vehicle for conceptualization of actions and instruments in the digital domain. Compositional and theoreti- cal principles of action-based musical practice are further described in my articles The Language of Action and Cyberaction-based Music: Theory and Practice and Notating Action-Based Music. The articles (as well as the scores) are available online and when this disc is viewed on a computer as a DVD-ROM. The project features Ensemble Pamplemousse, a performer/composer collective devoted to presenting the works of its members and other like-minded composers.
