↑ Composition for flash gun and balloons. As the steel drum in the middle rotates it triggers a microswitch which sets off a dismantled camera flash unit. An induction coil pickup microphone inside the flash unit amplifies the sound of the capacitor as it charges and discharges. The microphone signal is translated through an amplifier and speaker onto the pen. As the drum rotates the manuscript paper the composition writes its own score as it plays. The drum also rotates the balloons over the candle. The composition ends when all the balloons have been burst

↑ Remixed at a time when Israel was heavily bombing the West Bank

↑ Live performance for sextet playing balloons
