SP#7 »Stereo for Mill«
Stephen Lacy, Live Performance


Thanks to J.Boehm for the audio documentation.

The piece consists of one electric guitar, one stereo echo pedal and two guitar amplifiers. The rhythmic figure will be played through the pedal, which splits the signal to the two amplifiers thus fracturing the pattern through physical space. Each amplifier’s volume will be set to not bleed into the other space. Due to the hard pan of the stereo pedal, as participants move through the space the pattern effectively will only be partially audible. Only in the space between the galleries will the entire rhythmic figure be discernible thus using sound to bridge one space into another. The piece has no set duration but a minimum of 30 minutes is required. (Text score: Academy Records)
