Notes on this piece

Spotting Nowhere (2010) is a verbal score consisting of 36 verbally and 29 graphicaly instructed parts. Performers are invited to make a group realization of the composition using any amount of this material. The order of actions and their respective timings should be decided collectively prior to the performance. All decisions about how to structure and perform the piece should be made collectively (not by one individual), through a process of conversation and rehearsal.

The actions of Spotting Nowhere may be combined in any manner (based on the performers’ choice), so that an action can continue while another starts, more than one action can be performed simultaneously etc. An action can be repeated by the same person provided that one or more other actions are inserted between repetitions to avoid successive appearances of the same action. The order in which the actions are presented in this score is random and reflects no structural preference on the part of the composer. The duration of the performance of the piece is indeterminate but it should not be less than 8 minutes.

Where there are no specific instructions regarding the number of performers, the way a page of Spotting Nowhere should be performed (e.g. duration, repeats, order of events, ways of performing given actions) and the dynamics, the performers may decide freely, without any limitations.

You are encouraged to perform your chosen action(s) as naturally as possible. Extreme displays and theatrics should be avoided.
