A hundred copies of the same record are played, one after another, and the resulting sound is looped and layered by two performers as they move around in a single space. The actions undertaken iterate a repeating task. Each record is played, recorded, and looped in a precise score, integrating record, player, and speaker—object, movement, and sound. However, the specifics are decided in the moment, creating an aleatoric composition of fragments of familiar sound. Images repeat as deliberate movements rearrange the space.
A work-in-progress presentation of 1-100 was initially presented as part of impro.per.arts’ 60_minutes series at Kunstquartier Bethanien in October 2017.
