The purpose of the project is to provide a reliable and stable record of one instantiation of the work. (The performance took place at the Banff Centre Canada on 28 February 2009). This information is being examined in conjunction with data gleaned from a study of sources pertaining to the creative process conserved primarily at the Archivio Luigi Nono: sketches, drafts, fair copies, test and experimental recordings, interviews with Nono’s collaborators, records of rehearsals, as well as a careful examination of the equipment used at the time to manage the live electronic component of the composition.
