The lights and some possibilities for the sound were rehearsed but what happened was pure improvisation. The sounds modelated by Filipe Raposo, Cara Manning’s incursions on the clarinet, and João Ferro Martins’s tribal percussion worked as the net that caught the industrial sounds produced by Hugo Canoilas as he burned, painted and destroyed a guitar. This piece is obviously anchored equally in Jackson Pollock as it is in the Fluxus actions or Jimi Hendrix guitar immulation.
