Primer Camposanto




The 3 players created a score to be used as a module for the total length of the work which is divided in three 60 minutes movements.
Each player used the three scores and at a given point inserted ad libitum a solo: Sekundenklängen by Antoine Beuger on acoustic bass, 2008(4) by Manfred Werder on violin and Only (Harmony series #17) by Michael Pisaro on accordion.
Primer Camposanto finished with hinwandeln (zwischen Himmel und Erd) by Michael Pisaro performed by the trio (pages 13, 11, 15, 3 and 2).
The recorders/players had a personal score which determined their actions: amount, moment, position, etc. (see Camposanto Score.pdf)
The performance began 30 minutes late, thus there are no recordings belonging to the first half of movement I.
