These are instructions for a performance by listeners.
The performance can be done by any number of listeners, individually or collectively at one site or synchronised between a number of sites.
A performance site can be indoors or outdoors, is somewhat quiet and environmental sound is part of its presence.
It is necessary to be able to freely move around.
A private performance can happen at any moment at any place suitable.
A synchronised performance happens in a coordinated manner between different sites (starting and ending simultaneously).
Set a duration for your performance, 20 minutes or more
For the set duration you are invited to listen as attentively as you can to all sounds in and around you.
Listen to how they interact. Consider everything you hear.
You are encouraged to whistle, hum or to move to another position as a response to certain listening experiences you might have.
If or when to produce a sound (or not) or to move (or not) is up to your discretion, but when you do only act consciously and on a clear experience of any of the following;
1. when sounds seem to evoke each other
2. when a change of focus or awareness in your listening occurs
3. when you hear all sounds clearly, and all are equally important
When in doubt or without these experiences, remain still....
Allow for silences during your performance -just listen and don't act- .
Only onesound or move per response. When you whistle or hum, fully exhale to end your sound.
Your soundsshould be quiet, simple and static (no sudden changes of tone, loudness, etc.).
When you move, do it quietly and carefully.
Varied sonic collages, colorful as the eye-grabbing album art, twist and turn throughout Rossetto's "Fashion Tape." It's a delightful release that combines the artist's intimate drones with an almost playful plundering of samples and sounds. jckmd
