An Index of Possibility

Many thanks to Susan, who made me discover

An Index of Possibility by Robert Honstein

An Index of Possibility explores the secret world of sound in everyday objects. Using glass, wood, ceramic, homemade constructions, and cheap toys, Index unlocks a sonic palette exploding with color and variety. The music traverses a symphonic expanse, fluidly moving between ambient textures, visceral unisons and muscular virtuosity.

Robert Honstein (b. 1980) is a composer of orchestral, chamber, and vocal music.

  1. Some similarities to Cage, I think. But a bit more melodic. (Reminds me of temple bells at first, then builds even more intriguing sonic structures). I love the gamelan sound near the end of the piece….and I recognize a radial-arm sawblade among the instruments. 😀

      Yes, I also thought of temple bells. Very strange how such a wonderful sound can be made out of ordinary objects.
