Sixty Miniatures is an online audio installation comprising 60 one minute pieces with short moments of imagery, presented in a unique random order at each visit. I wrote music that avoided minimalist aesthetics, that contained almost too much material and imagery, and that crammed as many ideas as possible into one minute whilst still making sense. The website can be experienced as a whole or in bursts. Each time a listener enters the order of play is different, keeping the piece constantly alive.
Special mention to Ricardo Oliva Alonso for the website assistance, and to Seth Scott-Deuchar, Matteo Fargion and Laurence Crane for the creative input
