various distinct spatial or temporal locations (2011)[one player (coffee cup, surface) / 40″ – 1’20”]
various distinct spatial or temporal locations (2011) is for realisation by individuals using a takeaway coffee cup and a selected surface. Each realisation involves drawing the cup across the surface to make a sound. All realisations constitute the single performance of various distinct spatial or temporal locations. The title is taken from Dan Graham’s ‘The Glass Divider, Light and Social Division’, part of his Three Projects for Architecture and Video / Notes (1977). The piece is part of the series divisions that could be autonomous but that comprise the whole (2009- ).
If you perform the piece, please add a comment on your realisation using the form below, and email me a picture or video if you have one.

I’ve just finished a new piece which can be realised by anyone using a takeaway coffee cup and a surface. I’ve used this method of sound production in quite a few pieces, but here it is focused on a single action lasting between 40″ – 1’20”. All realisations of the piece constitute a single performance of various distinct spatial or temporal locations. So the score links all the actions which are made when realising the piece, wherever and whenever they might be undertaken.
The score is available to download here, and I’m encouraging people to document their realisations using the form in order to make the links more explicit.
