A Something Other commission proposal
A series of text scores online.
These text scores are the work.
There will be realisation of the scores/the work.
These realisations are not the work.
But these realisations are also the work.
The text scores are not sounding.
They link to sounds through footnotes.
They reference sounds.
But they are not sounds.
They are unsounds.
They are rituals.
Rituals must give the impression that they have (always) been repeated
It is the interpretation of the scores/the work by:
b) audience (online audience)
that contains the LIVENESS.
The moment between starting and stopping.
Once realised, the work becomes FIXED
(and becomes not the work)
A fixed object.
The fixed object is not available online.
The fixed object exists as:
a) A text description online (the description is not (always) the object)
b) A recording that may be posted to an audience
(the psychogeography of tape distros)
