ANECDOTAL COMPOSITION | 2011
Standing on the stairs, Gaëlle inflates balloons and places them on the steps. I speak about a precise set of descriptions of people going up and down stairs (attitudes, clothes, words that I heard, and that I noted). Gaëlle is both, a composer and a conductor, because the breath she gives allows me to speak. When she takes a breath, I shut up, then I speak again when she starts to inflates ballons again. It's a true composition that gives a rhythm, a tone to my voice, going from light whispers to shouted sentences, all depending on her position on the steps.
Performance, 22'16''; photograph, 30x45cm.
