I had quite a large amount of fun writing the score for Julie Groves' sound-art work And so I met my Other’s Other - here's what it's all about.
The work plays with the traditional roles of audience and performer, allowing audiences a level of choice about how they experience and influence the performance.
Performers are (mostly!) contained within a translucent raised box, with a gap at their foot level - the audience's eye level - so that you can look in and see the musicians if you wish, or remain further back and stay a little removed from the way the sound is being produced if you wish. For me this is a really refreshing way to experience music.
