The Score: Performance #2
Alec mentioned that he had this cd that featured farm machinery sounds. We were really interested in this. He is particular interested in wood work. He happened to have his tools on him and some branches in his bag. Much of this piece was inspired by Alec's earthy interests.
We wanted to contrast between the mechanical nature of the farm machinery and the organic instruments we were using to create sound.
For me this was so experimental. Especially when using the tools. I had no idea what any of them were meant for. Each one had different textures and shapes. I had fun trying out each tool on the wood. Each tool did something slightly different. I got really into it and definitely broke a sweat. I felt in focus given that I was one of the primary sound makers in the room. I felt very into my work and was simultaneously listening to Alec as a guide for my pacing. This was very experimental for me. I really appreciated the earthiness and rawness of the piece.
