August 2, 2011 – Sliced Bach

During the course of the 2011 Project I’ve been experimenting with new media to deconstruct and reconfigure. I’ve basically been looking to do what I do with maps to some new material. Some of the things I have used include vintage postcards, MUNI Fast Passes, junk food wrappers and origami paper. To that end, I’ve had this little book of Bach sonatas waiting for me to get at them with the scissors and exacto knife. I can’t read music, but every time I see old sheet music I just think cut and reconfigure and glue, then repeat. For the first run I’ve added the theatre at Versailles for a framework. And now, for some reason, I feel the need to wear a well-powdered wig today.
