6s and 7s #1
The Cerbère soundscape obsession started in April 2009. On the 6th and 7th to be precise, thereby initiating a series of site-specific and date-specific pieces using found sounds, in this case from a 1920s inspirational concrete hotel, Le Belvedère du Rayon Vert - sounds of wind whistling through metal balustrades, rattling windows, trains, and improvisations on the semi-derelict piano. Subsequent pieces were also collected/assembled on the 6th and/or 7th day of the month. Sixes and sevens, an old English saying to denote a state of confusion, seemed appropriate as that is a state I often feel as an artist - where do we go next?
