I’ve had my arm twisted into doing my first public gig in over two years, at the Placard Festival in Paris
. So far, I have only a hazy idea of what the festival is about: apparently it involves people sitting round a room listening to headphones or something. I can do that.
Anyway, it runs non-stop for 72 hours starting from Friday 27 July. I’m in the coveted Sunday 2.30 pm slot. There’s probably some streaming of the gigs over the web, but I need someone to explain it to me before I post about it here.
The piece I’m most likely going to play is an extended, live-performance version of String Quartet No.2 (Canon in Beta)
: this version will be closer to the earlier incarnations of the piece mentioned in the blog post, than the version available for download
. In the next day or two I’ll post some more about what’s really going on in this music.
