Four Ophones at PixelACHE Exibition in Nifca project space #1 during 14.-17.04.
by Erik Sandelin & Magnus Torstensson, Unsworn
Four Ophones is an invitation - and an unwritten score - for a composition that lasts as long as the exhibition does. You and other visitors take part as audience, musicians, and cocomposers. No one knows what will happen or how it will sound. Be prepared for everything from subtle interference etudes, to collaborative chanting and big, bad rhythm orgies.
