Cadavre Exquis

Cadavre Exquis

a surrealist musical installation

Friday, December 13, 6 – 9 pm

This event is the culmination of a year long recording experiment based on the surrealist writing/drawing game exquisite corpse, in which a multi-track recording was created with each musician hearing only the track recorded immediately before his or her own. The result will be presented in an interactive format where audience members can adjust the volume of each individual layer of music, thus controlling the mix that is played back to the entire room. With over forty participating musicians, the project explores new methods of musical collaboration and composition.

The recordings will play continuously from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, with a short introduction from Graham Cox at 7:00pm.
