Sans fin sans (endlessness): for guitar, seven wind instruments and double bass Amort, Joseph Scott


sans fin sans (endlessness) is a fifteen-minute musical composition scored for solo guitar, seven wind instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, horn, trombone) and double bass. Although the work is in one continuous movement, it consists of seven distinct sections, each constructed from fragmented pieces of a precomposed originating structure. Influenced by the prose of Samuel Beckett, sans fin sans is an exploration of non-linear time and the Deleuzian notion of art as abstract machine.
