In the middle 1970s I began to formulate ideas and projects leading to the making of music outside the concert hallsoften in large open and naturally beautiful sites. Ports, rivers, lakes, caves, quarries, fields, and woods, always ready sources of my musical inspiration, now became my new music theaters.
