Idiolect: Instructions for a Pop Song (2011)

A composition of five instrumentalists, all playing to the same recipe of a song. Each musician individually composed a line for their instrument in accordance with instructions on key, time and pitch. They were then filmed and recorded separately playing only to a metronome. Each recording was synchronised into a multi-channel sound and video installation that compiled each performance into one song. The audience could spatially ‘mix’ the sound in the gallery as they encountered the work on multiple screens.
