About the work

‘The sounds I am interested in include those that we hear all the time but are normally considered flawed or redundant: twigs snapping in a burning fire, paper tearing, breathing, instrumental sounds that aren’t considered ‘beautiful’ in standard terms. I think these sounds have their own beauty in the way that pebbles on a beach or graffiti can have.’

Technical notes

A CD plays throughout. All performers need a stopwatch.

boxes of matches, paper bags and twigs are also needed.
