For 8 or More Cymbals is a piece written after doing a performance for Collected Resonance with the group Ostracod. During this performance I was exploring different ways of playing cymbals. I used some of the techniques I developed in these improvisations and created an open score using a few written phrases and graphs to indicate volume and density. During the performance the musicians surround the audience as evenly as possible. The piece was premiered at the ANU New Music Ensemble Concert in August 2016.
