"A Catamaran Animist Vigor 1 ": The words "A Catamaran Animist Vigor" constitute the eleventh phrase of a list of 195 anagrams of "Anagrammatic Variations". These anagrams were produced using an online anagram generator and none of the results were rejected - regardless of how nonsensical they were. The ones used all have "Catamaran" or "Catamarans" in them.
A 2010 attempt was then made to type these 195 anagrams on the "Selectric Piano", an invention by Mark Dixon (made with the assistance of Fred Snider) that links the keys of a Selectric typewriter to an 88 key electronic keyboard so that something typed on the typewriter plays a note on the 'piano'.
A movie was made of the attempted typing of these anagrams and of the audible results. This was the 1st realization of the piece. Bart Trotman was the typist and I (tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE) took a MIDI signal out from the (S)Electric Piano and used it to trigger electronic sounds of my own design that I further manipulated. Two cameras were used to quasi-document this. The results were further mixed with 195 catamaran pictures that I found online.
Since each capitalized letter produces a different pitch than its lower-case counterpart and since the capitalization varies in the anagrams (while the basic letters, of course, don't), each anagram may have between 11 pitches (EG: "A Catamaran Animist Vigor") and 14 pitches (EG: "A Catamaran Visaing Mi Rot") (depending on which letters are capitalized) consists of a total of 21 pitches. However, it's not possible under these circumstances for all of these pitches to be in any anagram at one time. Therefore, there's some small variety not only in pitch sequence but in pitch set in the overall body of anagrams. - February 23, 2020 notes from tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE
