Thank You for Something – indoor

( Durational performance, indoor version 2011 )

Ausland, Berlin, 2011.

A single speech melody, in between speaking and singing, is repeated for hundreds of time without interruption over five hours by a single performer. The performer sings along a pre recorded invariable melody over and and over and is not allowed to stop or variate. During this time the audience and guest musicians are invited to join by playing instruments that have been set up on the stage around the performer. The guests can play whatever they like, improvising for the amount of time they see fit coming and going at every time. They create a variable environment within which the performer has to carry on with his invariable task.
