Strike and Hit - 2015

In collaboration with Christof Migone

Performance materials: 3 dial controlled Strike On machines, 3 performers, 6 guitar amplifiers

Performers: Jack Bride, Daničle Dennis, Natalie Duncan



Three identical microphone-hit-machines used microphones as percussion instruments to strike various objects and surfaces. 

Three live performers lay face down on the ground and use microphones as hit makers onto the floors and walls of the AGO.

These machines were designed to run independently, controlled by a microprocessor and through various alterable physical appendages.

These performers were instructed to hit using rhythms of their own choosing, pausing between sets of one hundred for as long as they wish. They could change position at each pause.
