melodica and percussion (2009)

for: melodica and percussion (1 player)

This piece was written for the /2009/ project at Q-02 in Brussels which started on 4.1.09 and ended on 13.12.09. It was a chain of sound recordings made over the course of one year by ten artists who each had four weeks to respond to the recording of an unknown predecessor. They received no other information than the recording itself, like a game of 'chinese whispers'. Each recording is seven minutes long and is accompanied by two pages in a diary. Recordings and diary are brought together in a publication due for release in May 2010. My residency was during July-August. As there were no instruments there, I brought a new melodica to work with, and used two pieces of plasterboard I found in Q-02.
