Quite by Chance is a comprehensive monograph by the Swiss-New Zealand composer Kit Powell, in which he documents in detail and in a very personal way his unique work. Using extracts from scores, pictures and diagrams, analyses, audio examples as well as anecdotal and philosophical comments he explains his composition work with and without chance for professionals and interested amateurs.
