I made a recording of a drummer, and myself playing saxophone, improvising together. We were both slightly “out of practice” and I was interested in the way we began to fall in and out of time with each other whilst both trying to follow the other’s lead, and the parts of a melody that arose from this.
I took part of the recording and notated the sounds as shapes and colours that vaguely followed a traditional linear musical score. I then used this drawing to inform a set of blocks, each object referring to a note from the original performance.
I am interested in how the information of the performance changes in translation as it becomes physical. Are the objects congruent to the original performance or is something lost, gained or changed during this process?
