Perdre Connaissance is entirely constructed around the live performance. Specific pitches, performance volume levels, attacks and spaces between attacks from the pianist are all used to trigger sonic events that are either comprised of real-time processing or prerecorded piano-derived samples. Thus, the score is to be followed precisely, since many of the triggers inherent determine the very structure of the work. The Electronic sound was origitnally for 8-channel algorithmic diffusion.
