Music for boxes or cubes.
Here the musical material is designed in such a flexible way that it can be built pieces ranging from a simple duet to a symphony orchestra. Each measure is placed on one face of the cube, for example in the first part would have a bucket of ten faces (!) due to the ten 'measure' of the piece, in the second and third pieces we have a bucket of 25 faces and in the fourth piece a bucket of 43 faces !!. This may seem like a hermetic or purely theoretical music as those were practiced in the Renaissance, but using today's technology, these cubes or music box can be designed and constructed.
