Community collaboration/performance, score and video
A composition for numerous drummers, each positioned on a street corner. Beginning with a single drum hit from one player, subsequent drummers imitate the sound of the previous drummer down the block, with the gesture evolving as it travels around the neighborhood. Over time, misinterpret their cues and source material, therefore adding new gestures to the original musical action, as nearby buildings and houses create more false echoes and polyphony. By performing Drum Grid, a community has agency to change the landscape of their neighborhood, activating potential questions and new generative urgencies.
