Mieko Shiomi An Incidental Story On The Day Of A Solar Eclipse 123
I am also going to perform Water Music [Shiomi poured water into a cup and drank it ]. Soon, Maciunas made an edition of these bottles [ Fig.
This photo was used for a postcard when the Guggenheim Museum SoHo in New York held the exhibition Japanese Art After inbut the photo was taken much earlier. To explain what I was doing, I was repeatedly playing on a turntable an SP record that had a layer of water-soluble glue on it.
When I dropped water from a syringe onto the record, the glue softened partially to reveal the surface of the record, and the player produced music from those areas while skipping the dry areas. As I increased the number of water drops gradually, more glue was gone Roger Sanchez Another Chance the music slowly became identifiable.
I inherited it from my parents, but there are scars from the needle on the central label, and it was a harmful performance for the disc. I also did a performance that made the water lose its still form. I was playing a water basin as a percussion instrument and was hitting the water surface with an upturned cup [ Fig. It looks like the performer is fooling around with the water, but it makes interesting sounds.
The bottles contain scores and tapes of various sorts of music. For example, Sonic Palindrome contains a score that I wrote as accompaniment for a Latin palindrome and a tape of its performance [ Fig.
Magnum Fully Loaded is somewhat mysterious and very worldly at the same time. Is there anybody here who is familiar with this palindrome? The melody I composed also reverses from its center. The tape Sade Stronger Than Pride of this by a synthesizer is inside the left bottle.
The bottle on the right contains a tape recording that mechanically reversed the original melody. That is to say that the sounds in the two bottles also form a palindrome. This series is filled with various musical concepts and jokes, using capsules with musical mottos in them, fragments of Various Visual Impact, silicon rocks, and pepper.
I made the series for the Sound Objects exhibition in Cologne. Speaking of the bottles, I also made a series called Grappa Fluxuswhen the Italian collector Luigi Bonotto the man wearing glasses, second from right in the photo gathered designs and ideas from Fluxus artists and asked his friend Massimo, a glass artist, to Mieko Shiomi An Incidental Story On The Day Of A Solar Eclipse 123 the bottles at the far right in the picture. This photo was taken when I visited the glass studio in Molvena, in Northern Italy, in order to sign the Pixies Come On Pilgrim bottles [ Fig.
This is called Musical Embryowhich I designed, imagining an undeveloped instrument in the form of a fetus [ Fig. This blue bottle contains a tape recording of very hesitating and awkward performances as if music were taking its initial form of twelve different kinds of preexisting musical forms, such as prelude and arabesque.
Although I diverted from the central theme, Water Music has various possibilities of performance. Ay-O sent these photographs to me. Is Mr. Ay-O here? I should have asked for your permission to use these photos today [laughter]. Here, everybody takes a cup of water from the lake and holds it up to the position that matched the summit of Mt.
When one person finished, the next would begin. Everybody waited until the last person finished the performance. Today, we will see another realization of Water Music in a performance following this talk. I wrote the score for a performance, Balance Poeminbut it was never performed, and I made an object that consists of Dwight Druick Tanger small scale printed Lennie Hibbert More Creation cardboard on which people can weigh words printed on smaller cards with different conceptual weights.
Because these people were not so simple, each of their replies was elaborate and interesting. This is one of thirty-four scales that I created by matching the cards containing the answers from everybody in [ Fig.
For example, one water molecule weighs 18 daltons. In parallel with this work, I also created twenty-four sheets of collages using photos titled Balance Poem [ Fig. An elephant is trying to cross a rope and is murmuring something. The series of balance-related works exhibited in the gallery has thus evolved. There are many other transmedia pieces, but the most extreme example is a series I began with a book locked with a key, submitted to the Book Object exhibition [ Fig.
This is one volume out of three. Each sentence begins with Mieko Shiomi An Incidental Story On The Day Of A Solar Eclipse 123 word that starts with the first letter of a dance form contained in the music.
Later this became a two-dimensional work. This is a photo from an exhibition at Galerie Donguy in Paris [ Fig. The recording is being played here in the museum exhibition. Of course, Mieko Shiomi An Incidental Story On The Day Of A Solar Eclipse 123 music and the content of my stories are not related at Two Man Sound Que Tal America. Lastly, I made a picture book in which I rearranged and collaged pictures of a piano in different sizes for the exhibition Dissonances at the Vagina Dentata Organ Allegory Of Cosmic Violence City Museum of Art in [ Figs.
Finally, let me talk about Direction Event. It was originally a performance. This is a picture of the premier at Washington Square Gallery. I was seated, wearing gloves, each finger of which was connected to a long thread [ Fig. Ten participants wrote directions on cards for where they wanted to bring the threads, read them, attached the cards to the threads, and pulled the threads in those directions. The man who was squatting over here is Allan Kaprow. I prepared a map and a compass. Later, with people all over the world I did Direction Event through the mail [ Fig.
