Marking the Contours of the Eternal Moment: indeterminate scores 2002-2009

Marc Jensen

Marking the Contours of the Eternal Moment is a collection of indeterminate scores and other writings by composer Marc Jensen, open to any instruments as means to explore making sound and performing in groups.

Marc Jensen is a composer, performer, and improviser, who received his Ph.D. in composition from the University of Minnesota. Much of his work is oriented around composing relationships rather than specific sounds - setting up situations in which performers follow simple sets of rules to interact and produce an unpredictably complex whole, structures without content. His principle teachers have included Pauline Oliveros, Alvin Curran, Alex Lubet, and Doug Geers. Dr. Jensen holds a teaching certificate through the Deep Listening Institute, and has edited several books on Deep Listening. He has published articles in the journals Perspectives of New Music, Tempo, the Musical Times, and Cinema Journal.
