“Synopsis” utilises the generative music system designed for Tube Ensemble, albeit in a controlled manner. Instead of allowing participants to randomly select YouTube videos, a specific “score” was planned, as to achieve a predetermined arrangement and dynamics in the composition. As it was the closing piece for the MA Composition portfolio, the decision was taken to search for videos according to the themes utilised for the previous portfolio  and commission works.

The score depicts the YouTube videos selected for the performance, their corresponding web addresses,  and all dynamic variations that allowed the generative system to convert it into the desired sonic result.
