journeyMan 1: Gallery edition

Martin Parker (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition

Abstract

This version of 'journeyMan' was composed for ambulant listener and smart phone. Walking, moving, turning and standing still are the actions that propel this piece forwards. Rather than playing from start to finish (like most songs you’ll listen to on mobile phone), this piece is spherical in form. Start the piece and the phone will perform for you. Change direction and harmonies might shift, stop moving and the piece may hover, until you start moving again.

Each performance of the piece will be similar in impression, but the moment to moment details are variable and dynamic. The version available in Talbot Rice was designed to accompany walks around Christopher Orr’s 'The Beguiled Eye' exhibition running next to 'Gap in the Air' in Talbot Rice’s White Gallery, but you can listen to this piece anywhere.
