Appropriately, my decision to create a work in response to the Possessions runescore was made in response to late withdrawals from the project by some collaborators and my concern that we did not possess enough responses to the scores for the installation to be as effective as it could be.
Over the years we have accumulated quite an assortment of percussion instruments that mostly sit and gather dust in two corners of my office space (on either side of the wall of stacked lanterns in storage from our Illuminating Site: Birdsong, patiently waiting the next incarnation of that project).
As my other sound responses to the rune scores have been text-based, I decided to make use of these instruments in some manner.
Striving not to over think my responses, I quickly grabbed the first instrument that I thought of in response to the five word prompts that accompany each of the fifteen actions runes and played them (rather poorly as instruments gathering dust are rarely practiced) for the designated time brackets.
Once the sound score was in place I gathered the instruments I utilized for the accumulation video of the work.
Jo was working in her adjacent studio to expand the installation content with an additional rune score response. A brief vocal exclamation expressing her frustration with Final Cut may be heard at the beginning of my video.
