CopyPaste/Remix

Cut, mix, or flip around a famous score to hear how it transforms. That was the approach I took to the intriguing art exposition CopyPaste/Remix in South Limburg. The gallery opening was on a sunny Sunday afternoon, and as part of Werkplaats K Artists in Residence, cellist Clara Rivière and yours truly on piano performed two classical remixes freshly made for this occasion.
The only rule I set was that the score could be visually modified as wished, but no notes or symbols could be deleted.

We asked our new friends from architecture and visual arts, Jana Dabac and Adriana Affortunati, to remix the Bach Prelude from Suite No. 1 . The result is called:

1 ETUIS EDULERP (hcab S.J.)

Listen here: 

They flipped the score without cutting or changing the order, so the cellist plays the piece backwards and inverted. Many elements of Bach remain even as harmonies are strange, accidentals on the wrong sides of notes.

For the remainder of the exhibition, visitors may listen to the musical CopyPaste/Remixes at our installation in Werkplaats K until September 16th, on Sundays from 14.00 – 17.00.
