Short improvisations with everyday objects

While deinstalling Leaving Here, Being There, I had a hammer and access to some of my work. I learned a bit about what a hammer sounds like while sliding along a concrete surface. While learning, I recorded a short improvisation.

Also, a few months ago, Erkki invited some music students over to our studio. Together we performed John White’s Drinking and Hooting Machine. I invite you to listen to a selection from that performance. The piece has a score based on each person’s phone number, but the performance is flexible as it is up to each performer to decide how long each tone will be and how large a drink they will take.
