Besides making musical arrangements and adaptations (Steve Reichs City Life, among others), he has composed works for various ensembles. A Dutch music critic once called Fiumaras music a meeting between Feldman and Xenakis.
The piece presented this evening is based upon the idea of using objets trouvées in the music. Anthony Fiumara calls his material found mathematical objects: simple machines which, like the development of plant and branch structures, form increasingly complex forms by means of strictly recursive processes. The creative act of composing becomes an extension of organic processes, which are the basis of both natural and social evolutions of form.
