Plurality of Attention

Hayden Dean Prosser

Plurality of Attention is a composition and performance that demonstrates a scoring system based on the contemporary music situation. The work focuses on life currently as a complex web of social and societal demands and its effect on attention, as well as the intricacies of combined, individual world views. It uses a simplified score that highlights live music as a kind of performance gesture and allows varying performers from sonically involved art practices to participate together. For an audience, an individual understanding is promoted through its multi-layered signifiers of meaning and possibilities for focus.
