Re: site specific looping

I donīt think Nadia was claiming that site-specific was HER term. To put my understanding of the word as it is used in Art generally, is that the site where the piece is performed has something to say about the piece itself, it maybe special acoustics, or a history/story attached to the place. It may have some architecture that allows the performer to move in a particular way in relationship to the audience, or it may refer to "playing of the place" itself. Via hits and percussion...

I think maybe of us, as improvisors will find themselves reacting to the venue, however, doing a new concert each time in a new location is called "a gig".


Lovely stuff Nadia...

(my first ever girlfriend when I was 8 or 9 was called Nadia.. ahhh where is she now?)

dear loopers,

lately i have been performing more and more in interesting locations and I find this is getting to be a real essential part of my work. just wanted to know if others are also working with site specific performance work.

here some examples ( 2nd, 3rd and 4th Performance are all utilizing looping technique):

another looping perf done in a gallery ( less site specific): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtGVjHWpOzc

would love to hear comments about working in this way... for example i love old staircases or torn down buildings...
