WORKBOOK (2016)

 

A small "lesson book" consisting of 20 sound-based performance exercises (realizable on any instrument, with minimal music reading skills required). These exercises may be realized individually, in succession, simultaneously as a group, or in combination with each other.

 

Physical booklets were mailed to a group of about sixty volunteers in the summer of 2016. Over time, artists recorded their personal realizations of each exercise and sent them back to me, resulting in a compiled library of over thirty different interpretations of each exercise on a diverse range of instruments. My current intention is to make a digital album of 20 tracks that utilize the realizations from each exercise as material for a sound collage.
