Body is a text score for musician.
The premiere recording was made at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (CA) during the summer of 2018.
The score is as follows:
Prologue (without sounding)
Approach your instrument.
Listen with your eyes.
Listen with your memory.
Listen with your body.
Listen to understand.
I – Skin
Find your skin
Where are all the things that have touched it?
Where are your memories of touch?
Where is your pattern and your habit?
Say no at points of continuation
This skin is not continuous
II – Muscle
Find your muscle
Move sound into one point on the body
Interrogate that sound
Flex and contract
Breathe through moving the point of the sound
Where are your points of turning?
III – Bone
Find your bone
One material, one palette, one body
Understand the support this gives you
Do not think about transitions
Transitions will occur
