‘surfaces’ is a series of photographic scores that can be used as a whole and in any combination, for any number of players.
. ‘surface’ in it’s literal definition represents something we can touch, can come into contact with. However for me, the moment just before we physically touch the surface is often the first physical sense of the surface we have. This is most easily understood by remembering the moment just before ones fingers touch the skin of a loved one.
It is this ‘surface’ that is to be represented equally in any interpretation of the score alongside the performers attempts to convey the different qualities and features of surfaces photographed.
. matters of duration are left to the performer.
. the sounds in the performance space are the audible surface and as such should be treated as an equal element.
