Abstract: it is impossible for everyone to achieve everything they want (2018) asks the players to construct sequences of sounds, responding to what they hear preceding players do. Players have control over their own actions, but generally not those of others. They can influence some behaviours but not control the group totally, although forming allegiances might enable more control to be exerted on the group. The piece uses a set of artificially constructed or presented sounds, including text-to-speech computer voices, recordings of real world sounds, algorithmically generated music, synthesisers, radio, dictaphones, and spoken commands delivered over megaphones. The title is taken from Larry Diamond's text 'What is Democracy?' (2004). This Collection comprises a single-component output with contextualising information, evidencing the output in the form of a music score and video recording of a performance. Contextualising materials include a 300-word statement, research timeline, research questions, and documentation of a conference presentation entitled 'Heuristic models for decision making in rule-based compositions'.
