Sometimes I think of that place we would sit and silently pretend there would be no more weeks to begin, only time flitted away looking out across that river like it was some vast ocean, tracing perfect hearts and circles in the grass, hoping for the same.I picture that place in my mind.I know I was there: when she glances up, someone is there to catch it. But when I look now, I can only see the present, both of my mind’s representation, and that place itself: I have never been back. And she sits there alone, without anyone, waiting, possibly. Maybe for me, maybe for someone else - she hasn’t said, and I haven’t.

Gustav Rye - Improvisation 1

gustavrye:

call me, call when you get in. 
look around the corner. 
look around, I said. 
did you see it? 
down the stairs. 
is he? 

oh.

neposílejte zraníte na mé nebezpečné ryby

prosím, nezabíjej nic s mým montáž na stěnu kytary

na zem

Vladimir Smirnov - String Quartet

Clare Nina Norelli - Piano Improvisation #1

ghostofyesterday:

It’s always exciting whe one rediscovers works created during different periods of artistic exploration. Here is an experimental piano improvisation I recorded in 2006. Despite the bad quality of the recording, I feel there are some ideas therein which I would like to revisit and reinterpret. I wonder what I was thinking or feeling whilst playing? Sadly I cannot recall it’s creation or inspiration. I’m very happy I recorded it however, for just as a photography renders a relic of the physical self at a particular point in time, here I feel the improvisation no doubt expresses my preoccupations, obsessions and frustrations at this point in my life. I listen as a stranger, as if the girl playing the piano is not really me, and I’m learning some of her secrets…

Unashamedly atonal…

John Strieder - Fractured for Violoncello Solo - 4.

A quite beautiful final piece of four in the series Fractured by John Strieder. There is some slight re-tuning of the cello, to create the desired intervals of natural harmonics.

Katie Paterson - Earth-Moon-Earth

A few years ago, Modern Art Oxford hosted a Disklavier piano, repeatedly playing Katie Paterson’s work Earth-Moon-Earth. Paterson transcribed Mozart’s Moonlight Sonata into Morse code, transmitted this information to the moon, and recreated the score using the reflected information captured. Information is lost in this process, meaning parts of Moonlight Sonata that were sent to the moon just never returned to Earth.

Charlie Sdraulig - String

They almost appear to be rips across the face of the score, but each line here is graphic notation for each performer, over the space of about 20 seconds. Sdraulig also provides a more detailed, “transposed” score for the performers; in my opinion though, that would act more as a guide to this page; this sparse score speaks more concisely than the fully annotated version.

I couldn’t find any recording of this work, but the score is here.

Luigi Turra - Aura

The silence in Aura is so beautifully crafted, that you sometimes get to the point where you don’t want it to be broken.
