Vexations Marathon-Saturday 1 May- Part 3

Group 3 13:00-15:00

Fiona Harvey, Yoon Chung, Amanda Heish, Gabriela Georgieva, Alice Pinto

Worried about doing the same harmonisation twice in a row! Most of the audience currently have their eyes closed though so not sure anyone would mind…

***

12.00- The most different performance ever. Thank you very much for the adventure.

***

Cocoon like set up is rather therapeutic and comforting. I wan to be in my PJs

***

1.30-Initial apprehensions left as the music took over; ‘ambience in the room is encouraging, therapeutic and quite comforting.

***

V.363 I feel like the music is a ‘heartbeat’- it has been going on inside for ever…Quite possessive about it and reluctant to pass it on.It means a different thing every time: your heartbeat goes on yet you can be angry, sad, etc…The time playing feels about half that of the counting! I was so wrapped up playing I would have forgotten to count had the sheet and pen not been thrust at me! Glad I don’t have to count again!

***

All done (for me, at least). Just counted for Gabi, whose playing was arrestingly beautiful. Now, time for lunch!Audience: 12 highest number yet?

***

3.00pm? It’s only very rarely that one feels such timelessness, so with much gratitude to Papa Satie.

***

What an amazing experience and thank you London Sinfonietta for inviting us to take part in a unique performance. Alice, I loved your different interpretations- it made counting so so much quicker, thank you!

***

3.00pm The second time IS more tough! I don’t doubt this line (melody) will continue well past midnight, into eternity…?
