The Count of Multiple Choices by Paul Burnell, composed 2019.

Flexible scoring - for any number of performers.

The piece consists of a sequence of numbers, all 2s and 3s. The performers count out each of the numbers in the following way: 12312121231212… etc., and speak and/or play in unison in a regular fashion.

The score is presented in two versions on two separate pages - a basic version without specific guidance regarding musical interpretation, and a version with interpretation suggestions and where more than five repetitions of a number are indicated in smaller superscript text.

Programme note:

'The Count of Multiple Choices' was originally devised for the London CoMA Ensemble in February 2019 as an exercise in irregular time signatures. The piece was first performed by the East London Community Band: Premier Ensemble, Directed by Jonathan Ticher, on 5 April 2019 at St Dunstan's Church, Stepney, London.

The score consists of a sequence of seventy-six numbers (the numbers 2 and 3) and the performers are asked to devise a musical interpretation. Interpretation suggestions are given which the performers can choose to observe or alternately choose to devise something new.
