    The 480 piece is comprised of four

    segments: Exposition (0) , Development (2),

    Recapitulation (4) and Coda (6). The protocol for

    sonic mass is a means of understanding the

    compositionalmeritsofVarese,hisaspirations,anda

    wayoftakingadatasetfromoneart,andestablishing

    itasthegeneratorforanother.

    Sonic mass produces a number that computes

    multiple variables that Varese utilizes to attain a

    spatialityofsound.Ratherthanavisualizationofthe
