recitals of Robert Ashley’s
“Yes, But Is It Edible?”

Since 2004,Will Holder has been working
with AlexWaterman on “Yes, But Is It Edible?”,
a scored biography of the composer, to be collectively
read aloud. Holder and Waterman have
developed a form of typographical notation in
order to reproduce (semi-autobiographical)
operas that were developed through oral instruction
and negotiation. During the period of the
exhibition, Holder will be residing in Brussels
to complete this publication.
On show at Objectif are earlier works of Robert
Ashley which – though not included in the biography
– have informed the process of its making.
