Continuum, expanded is a mixed media work that takes György Ligeti's Continuum (1968) as a starting point, tackling questions about metrics, discreteness, time, and cultural heritage. Ligeti's piece served as the backdrop for an essay and a series of rave synthesis approximations to the original score.
This piece has been presented in these shows:
A number of versions/approximations to 'Continuum' by Sharp/Jiménez de Cisneros have been published on cassette for some of the shows. Visitors were encouraged to take a copy of the tape home. In April 2015, Khalija Records published yet another cassette with more approximations.
