> DESCRIPTION
Serialism: a technique for composition that uses sets to describe musical elements, and allows the manipulation of those sets.

“I've made a list of 1884 different note combinations (3 note combinations, ex: A,A,A# and A,A,B etc.) I've also made a list of 1884 different color combinations. People who come to the show will choose 9 of these combinations (color and music) for us to play. I've invited some of Los Angeles' greatest musicians to perform the night of the opening.”
                                                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                                                                   -Oscar Santos

This is music in which some element of the composition is left to chance.
