about

A human life is an improvisation: interacting with its times, pushing up against them to make space for itself… And disappearing as it unspools, until the thread leaves the reel and drops away. Reproductions may remind the living of an improvisation, or of a life, that is finished, but they do not preserve it.

UNSUNG: Eight short alto saxophone pieces recorded from 09h00-09h30 on Sunday 19 April 2020, in London, UK. The recordings were never heard, but the sound-wave image of each (or part of it) was copied manually onto paper before the saxophone playing on each piece was completely muted. The beginnings and endings of most of the pieces are signalled by an (audible) hand-clap.
