Program Notes: 

Facture No. 2 (2006) for solo percussion is the second work in a series of solo works composed with a rigid compositional process focused on form and structure of gestures. Facture (french) - a construction, a making, a work fo art, or in this case, a musical construction. The work is organized by timbre (unpitched-metal, pitched-metal, skin, and wood) and makes use of an incipit, as well as stochastic and serial processes.

Facture No. 2 was composed with the use of algorithmic composition tools programed in Max/MSP.
