Closing Performance of Yes, But is it Edible, Exhibition on Robert Ashley

Objectif Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium (http://objectif-exhibitions.org/)
Sat, 07/03/2010 - 5:00pm

Performance of Beacons of Ancestorship, Live via Skype from New York!

Performance by JEREMIAH DAY;
live broadcast of a radio
play by ALEX WATERMAN;
recitals of Robert Ashley’s
“Yes, But Is It Edible?”
(1999, by Will Holder) and
“Maneuvers for Small Hands”
(1961, première, pianist
to be confirmed).

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.
