Harp & Things

Title: Harp & Things
Materials: field-recordings, sound FX records, mixing desk, pencil sharpener, harp, contact microphones
Concept: Harp & Things is a feminist reading of the harp as a context for the production of music and sounds. Inverting the stereotypes of beauty, delicacy and otherworldliness which normally attend this instrument, this performance mines the instrument for indelicate and worldly sounds. A graphic/idea score for this work is attached below.
