Jean Pierre Muller - 7X7
Nå begynner det virkelig å bli vanskelig å skaffe alt av Robert Wyatt!
Han er en av de utvalgte i Jean Pierre Mullers prosjekt 7X7, hvor det ser ut til å dreie seg om interaktive lydskulpturer. 7 kunstnere, hvert verk i 7 eksemplarer.
Jeg stjeler fra siden til Muller:
"7×7 is seven interactive sound sculptures, silk-screen-printed in an edition of seven. Music emerges from the picture as the viewer approaches the artwork and disappears as they go away (speakers are hidden in the structure). Each work takes the shape of one letter corresponding to a note (A to G) and has a dominant colour corresponding to one of the colours of the rainbow. Each “letter” is linked to a chakra, day of the week and the planet and deity to which this day is associated.
Seven of the world’s greatest musicians have composed an original music for 7×7, in response to themes linked to the artwork. Each composition is in the corresponding key (for instance, the soundtrack for A is in A…). And so, in the 7×7 grammar, we have:
A = ROBERT WYATT = Red = Monday = Moon = Diana = Muladhara (Earth)
B = ARCHIE SHEPP = Orange = Tuesday = Mars = Svadhisthana (Water)
C = SEAN O’HAGAN = Yellow = Wednesday = Mercury = Manipurana (Fire)
D = MULATU ASTATKE = Green = Thursday = Jupiter = Anahata (Air)
E = KASSIN = Blue = Friday = Venus = Visuddha (Ether)
F = NILE RODGERS = Indigo = Saturday = Saturn = Anja (Soul)
G = TERRY RILEY = Violet = Sunday = Sun = Sahasrara (Vibration)"
Og akkurat her finner du informasjon om bidraget til Robert Wyatt.
Hmm, hva koster en sånn da tro?
