The third exercise in field research on the re-performance and the effect of the archive. I performed George Brecht's "Drip Music" in three iterations: live, audio (cassette and LP), and on pre-recorded film. Archival photographs of historic performances of the piece were hung in the gallery space as was a large reproduction of Brecht's score. Audience members were invited to perform the piece and respond to a questionnaire on how their interpretation was influenced: archival photo documentation, my documentation, or the Brecht's original score.

Performed at Skylab Gallery for the exhibition "Up in the Air"
