More so because neither party has any idea about what will happen on the day. Speaking of "organically"... I was just searching this term online and then I stumbled across the term "biomusic". It appears I have been sleeping during this particular revolution, or should I say, evolution! It turns out that "biomusic" is produced by anything that is not human.
I think we should suggest that Joe uses "biomusic" in our piece. What will it be? A whale song? A slime tune? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-31655846
I am looking back at some of contemporary music I attempted to perform years ago as a student at the Royal Academy and Eastman: Luciano Berio's Piano Sequenza (I got inspired when I heard his trombone sequenza played flawlessly by a RAM student during Berio's visit) and Iannis Xenakis' Mists (which I first heard played by the brilliant Greek pianist, Yannis Vakarelis). Both pieces are still edgy and intellectually challenging. Do they stir the soul? I would say that their mission statement is probably quite different to ours.
I wonder how this collaboration will evolve. What will we learn? Where will we end up? How will our intentions change? Will a title come through naturally? Will we give Joe the tools he needs to complete this by August?
We will have to wait and see...
