Second Camposanto




Segundo camposanto was a walk in the public cemetery in Recoleta, on the morning of Thursday 23rd of June. We took recording devices, instruments and scores with us. Everyone recorded several two-minute segments in different media and sites throughout the cemetery, following a rigid pattern of duration and chronological stipulation.
On the other hand, Sebastián performed für eine(n) oder einige ausführende(n) [Manfred Werder], Santiago did page 519 of ein(e) ausführende(r) [Werder] and pages 13 and 27 of monodies pour mallarmé [Antoine Beuger], Álvaro executed for percussion perhaps, or … [James Tenney], and Nicolás did page 1 of eine/r 1-9 [Stefan Thut] and his own intemperie # 2. Also Álvaro and Nicolás played page 385 of zwei ausführende Werder].
Each of these activities was away or unavailable for others, who did not know what you did.
It was a beautiful winter morning, very cold, sunny, the birds sang, some people worked watering, cleaning graves, sweeping, guards patrolled, others performed scores, occasionally there were sounds.
