Report On The Composition Of Improvised Music No. 1 (1993)
    These two articles were first printed in Rubberneck 15 (November 1993) and 28 (1998?). They contain descriptions of the author's compositional methods in writing for large ensembles as well as reflections related to this topic. No. 4 is especially noted for its introduction of the concepts 'invasive/non-invasive composition', seen from the side of the performers. Additional articles in this series (Report...No. 2+3) were published in Rubberneck no.17 (Dec. 1994) +24 (June 1997)).
