Files & Media
Flexible instrumentation-- a duo of melody instrument and piano, plus CD recording (electronic collage of many sound sources). Visual image projection and narration by a third performer are optional. All performers speak isolated lines of text written by Charles Darwin. Performers work with a 30-minute CD recording, and choose a portion of that recording (anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes). They then perform (some improvised) material, using an instruction sheet, against the recorded sounds. An homage to Charles Darwin -- his life and work - in celebration of his 200th birthday year.
