FIVE LAYERS are:
Five musicians, who hasn’t seen one another during the recording session.
Each of them recorded one layer of each of the five pieces.
Somebody started the piece, recording the first layer in complete silence.
Second person recorded the next layer.
Each one had to think about the other person to leave enough space for another recorded layer.
On this record, just like in real life, each of us speaks the FIRST word, somebody ANSWERS with his own word, to say at the very end just once THE LAST WORD.
Recorded during the improvised session that took place in May 2016 at OPT Art Centre Wroclaw, Poland.
“What time is it?” she said to the man sitting next to her – the third person in a row that she had asked the same question.
“Half past three,” he replied.
“Do you have any money for me?”
“Are you kidding?! You don’t look poor or crazy!”
The man next to her, drinking Jever, was only half right. If we sit next to someone just for a minute, there’s only one thing we don’t know: whether they are crazy or not.
I left her with her thoughts, like an epitaph: eat your chips in peace.
For me, many situations like this are associated with this record.
