noun. Indeterminate structures are processes that are carefully designed, but have unpredictable end results.  They are wondrous experiments let loose in the world to wreak havoc or create intense beauty as they will.

Indeterminacies introduces new, compelling music to our audiences and invites them to dissect both the music and their relationship to it.  We bring in local and regional composers and performers along with writers, philosophers, and critics, mix in a curious audience, stir things up.
