Action Music may be played by any number of instruments, in any combination, from soloist to orchestra! Throughout most sections of the piece, the performers play together in a tight rhythmic unison, following the same general melodic shape. However each player decides for themselves exactly what pitches, sounds, and instrumental techniques to employ. Some sections use graphic notation - dots, dashes, and scribbles to depict the musical textures. Other sections use descriptions to suggest changes in sound or mood, such as "Massive Noise," "Drunken, wobbly," or "Sharp and edgy."
