Martijn Tellinga has a lot to tell us about his work one site, counting.
I went to the gallery. Unpacked my flute. Listened to the sounds. Followed the instructions on the page in front of me. Sometimes merging and melding and musing with simple audio is healing and deeply inspiring. This was the case here.
‘one site, counting’ is an experimental setting fusing aspects of Martijn Tellinga’s earlier investigations into self evolving durational pieces and resonance tuning. The piece is the result of his pondering over questions of the musicality of space and spatial animation of musical matter, as well as his ongoing interest in how experience of place and surrounding comes about through resonance. ‘one site, counting’ attempts to explore resonance of site as an oscillation caused between acoustic properties, musical interpretation and narrative structure.
