A few years ago a septet I was part of performed scores by Adam Sonderberg, Sarah Hughes, and Joseph Clayton Mills. I’m very happy to be able to organise this new event whereby we will revist Jo Mills’s score. A great deal of the octet’s realisations will be geared towards the notion of documentation and residue.
The Patient is a text score, released as a book, with accompanying CD, by Entr’acte. It’s inspired by and incorporating fragmentary notes written by Franz Kafka on his deathbed to communicate with friends and family. The Patient draws from the texts of these conversation slips for specific imagery, textures, mood, gestures, and instrumentation.
