recorded/assembled May 14 - 21 in Sydney, Australia

realisation of a text score written (for 'proposal from the future’) at the end of April:

=======================================

find a place where you can sit/walk/stand for a time with your eyes closed

'Listening, for awhile'

hum the pitch of a sound you hear humming for a full outbreath

listening, your memory of this sound intermingling with your surroundings

eyes still closed, touch an object or surface within reach, feeling the material, texture, density

feel or imagine this surface/object vibrating, hum a tone at which it might resonate

listening again, to the interaction of these tones, and your surroundings

eyes still closed, what can you smell, can you imagine the source of this scent, can you hum a tone that might emanate or resonate from the source of this smell

listening again, to the interaction of these tones, and your surroundings

eyes still closed, tasting, the air, the inside of your mouth, does the air make a sound as your move it around on your tongue, hum this sound, taste it as it resonates in your mouth, your throat, your head, feeling as it vibrates through your skull, your bones, your body



listening once more, but also feeling, smelling, tasting, the interaction of these tones, of your surroundings

open your eyes, the first sight that you grasp, say this word.
