  What interested me was looping the events in such a way that each time they reappeared, they created new musical objects. The idea of tautology. The first Tautologos 3 was a written score, a text-score (like many others at that time), where I explained the rules of the tautology; it was a score which gave individual players the freedom to choose their action. We did this version a lot, in instrumental and theatrical contexts. Well, what with mixing up other peoples instrumental and theatrical actions, after a while I wanted to do my version of the piece! (Laughs) So I wrote an instrumental score which respected the demands of the text-score. From time to time I taught workshops where I did Tautologos 3 very often, with the students having to follow the score quite closely-so when I showed them my own version they said: Youre cheating! Youre not following the rules! And I said: I am free, you know... Luc Ferrari. Accessed 15.11.06 from
