I was invited to make a version of interpretations of Christian Marclay's objects score "Sixty-Four Bells and a Bow" for his exhibition "Festival" at Whitney in summer 2010. There is no instruction for this score. It was left for the artist who was given the score.
I spent 4 days to build my interpretation utilizing my CDL performance method. It is using Max/MSP and ppooll acts to create simple audio feedback concept. It reflects my positions & angles in _very_ unstable manner with Nintendo Wii controller. Bells and the exhibition room had become my instruments. Bow was used _not_ for scrubbing but lifting the edges of some bells to create series of smaller chambers in comparison with the room and the open bells. (The bow part wasn't included in this video.)
This one is the 5 min excerpt from the second day/attempt.
In the exhibition "Christian Marclay: Festival", Marclay curated all artists/musicians to interpret his visual scores. The score "Sixty-Four Bells and a Bow" whitney.org/Exhibitions/ChristianMarclay/Scores#31540 was assigned to Nicolas Collins, Ikue Mori, Raz Mesinai, Kato Hideki & Zeena Parkins, Cyro Baptista, Raz Mesinai & Marina Rosenfeld, Yasunao Tone, Kenny Wollesen, Andrea Parkins, and Keiko Uenishi (o.blaat)
