score for a locale


The concept of listening to / performing music some distance away has interested me since childhood. I’m not sure I can remember now what started it, but when I have the opportunity it’s still something I find quite powerful, for performers and audience.

For this piece in the series, the musicians were positioned at various distances from the centre of the village of Topolo during the annual Stazione Di Topolo festival. A shot was fired to signal the start of the performance, the musicians asked to listen to their immediate locale and place sounds on alongside those around them, but not louder. 

a recording of the piece was issued via Touch Records on the 'Portable Music' release
