Notes on this piece
Add to a playlist
My initial sketches for this work meditated on the idea of musical "maps" in various forms, such as mapping characteristics of one melody or harmony onto another. This led to experiments with what I thought of as "navigational performance maps." Since the piece was initially intended to be performed without a conductor, separate players would take turns leading the rest of the group forward as the work progressed, coloring the journey with their own idiosyncrasies. I tried to avoid recapitulation in the work; i.e., instead of an A-B-A, form, to instead use A-B-C-D-E- (and on), so that it ends in a different place than it began. The title comes from Martin Waldseemüller's 1507 map Universalis Cosmographia.
