Footprint, rise

This piece gives body to absence, with sound elements based off of Brahms’ first piano rhapsody. Inside the piano bench is a recording of the clumsy rendition of this piano piece, by the violinist. On music stands throughout the room are handmade paper instructions for playing the piano to create a sound landscape. The performer guided people to listen to the piano bench and improvised off of the sounds inside the room. Site Unseen at the Chicago Cultural Center, November 2005. Performance duration: 3 hours.
