Aleatoric music and pointillism were just two of the many new ideas swirling about in the 1960s and ‘70s. Random, indeterminate, chance (aleatoric) fields of notes and the notion of many isolated “dots” or pinpricks of sound (pointillism) inform Beecroft’s second “improvisation,” written for the NAC Orchestra’s second season in 1970-1971.
