Recording From My Heart, Live performance, 2011

The project presents two percussionists sitting in separate spaces of gallery unable to see each other and hear each other clearly. They attempt to communicate musically while listening to an audible notation of the same score called "Recording From My Heart", heart beat generated score drawn from the artist's previous work, Staying Alive. The presence of another drummer complicates the given notation and provides a secondary score. The duo attempts to create a musical dialog (sometimes call-and-response, sometimes duet, etc) while overcoming the obstructions to the performance. The audience becomes a part of this challenging setting in role of listener/addressee as well as his or her body as another parameter to the performance that affects the drummers' dialogue. Eventually the performer and audience in the space form a ephemeral, musical statement together beyond the walls of exhibition space.
