The Two of Us

The Two of Us was my original contribution to the book, Playing with Words, a project curated by Cathy Lane at CRiSAP in the University of the Arts London. It was devised for the printed page with no immediate thought of live performance. It occupies two facing pages (see image at the top of this page), one containing a transcription of a message left for me by friend and fellow composer Gordon McPherson, to whom the piece is dedicated, the other containing a pseudo-manifesto statement structured around the text of the message.
The piece has developed a life of its own as a live performance which I have done at the Conway Hall, Tate Modern and at the German launch of Playing with Words in Frankfurt, from which the video was taken. This version is also on the live DVD.
