The score for the piece consists of a six bar-graphs displaying the number of newly confirmed Covid-19 infections on every day between March 1 and June 30, 2020 in six different states of the United States. Each player plays the data of one of these states: New York, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Washington and California. (…) Accuracy in interpreting this percentage of immersion to each day’s data is less important than accurately rendering the wave shown by the 7-day average line on the graph, so that growth and contraction of infections at each location will be rendered by the changing pitch range of each gong.
