Daisy-chains is an ongoing composition part of the AHRC-funded Garden of Forking Paths Project, researching indeterminacy as a technique of composition for clarinets. The premise is simple. All clarinet fingerings can produce multiple tones, some more stable than others. There are 373,248 discrete fingerings possible on the clarinet. This piece is a random-walk through that space, one step at a time.

To contribute, take one of the clarinet fingerings in the chain and record yourself (video or audio) playing a single breath that moves simply from one fingering to another. Start by playing a multiphonic from the chain then add OR remove ANY one finger/key/hole to make a new fingering: try to hold the multiphonic, or make reasonable adjustments to support the new resonances, try not to treat it as two separate attacks, allow the fingering change be a disruption that you respond to by keeping it in balance (supporting what comes out of the disruption). See here for style example.

Please submit the recording and the two fingerings through this webform. Or email to Scott McLaughlin. See the Twitter feed for new nodes as I receive them!

This page keeps track of the chain, and links to recordings of each node in the network (to view the network diagram below you may need to sign into diagrams.net via Google). Hover on the image for tools at the bottom, including 'layers' to isolate players' contributions.
See here for a playlist of the videos.
The recordings will ultimately be mixed into a version of the piece that weaves all the strands together (a snapshot of the network at that moment).
Another future working will be a decentered network diagram which you can pull around to make any node the centre. An early draft can be seen here.
