V.3 with a stop frame animation. Each new dot is proportionally the same distance from the centre of the page as the original apple to tree measurement that generated the note. This a just an experiment really, I’ve always envisaged an audio visual presentation of the work where stop frame animation would be a part of a greater piece.
It’s been about 12 years since the last time I made a stop frame animation. I had Oliver Postgate’s voice in my head narrating as I was working, a strange but not unpleasant experience.
V.2 (2009 2010 combined score)
Live performance at Trelissick Gardens Cornwall
The Original 11 note score
I’m in the lull between the June drop and the September/October ripening so I thought I would see how the new score is shaping up. I’ve pieced it together for a piano to make things easier in the short term but I’m looking forward to transposing it for a string quintet.
The first turf dug February 2008, the last time this soil was turned it was pre WWll
March 2008, the rabbit fence goes up.
September 2008, some much need digging, only leaks and kale this autumn.
Can’t find any photos of 2009 but added some more raised beds, dug a pond and started a shed from pallets and other found stuff.
Looking East down the plot, March 2010.
…and up the plot.
May 2010, Jim flowering at the back there, also finished the shed and a nice blue gate.
