A diagram of some of the underlying structures for the composition, here represented as geometric shapes, colors, topological connectivity, and pitch classes.

The topology of the graph in the above diagram is directly represented in the virtual landscape: each pitch class node represents a sculpture, and the edges connecting pitch classes are paths from sculpture to sculpture. In the musical domain, the nodes represent available musical material for each song in the Fools Paradise song cycle. The pitch classes here only hint at the final form of the compositional material for music. Developing that material is our most immediate work-in-progress.
