Barry Truax develops two ideas:
- The work is grounded in a specific context, one that provides an audience with a frame of reference for understanding it. - There is a necessity to relate the external to the internal complexity. The examples are extracts from his work, Powers of Two: The Artist, a work for two singers, female dancer, video tape and eight digital soundtracks.
