A day in my life is an artistic encounter with a text. It is an aesthetic exploration of everyday experiences and their transformations into artistic experiences. A poetic text with instructions was written by Kathleen Coessens. The score offers open-ended instructions for exploring the relation between everyday experiential knowledge and artistic know-how.
This project seeks to pick up and refocus the inherent artistic research elements found on the collaborative work developed by Juan Parra and Henry Vega as members of the percussion and computer music trio "The Electronic Hammer", where the role of the computer and its performer was challenged, explored and developed to achieve the same level of musical nuance, expressiveness and responsibilities as traditional instruments in a chamber music setting.
