Pergolesi Susan 2012 Goldsmiths

I sing the first movement of Pergolesi’s Stabat Matar repeatedly whilst rotating on a lazy susan mechanism. I am accompanied by my pre-recorded and projected digital self. I sing the soprano part live and the alto part in the projected recordings.

There are three significant sites featured in the footage depicting the repetitions; a church, a seminar room and a natural beauty spot). I am attempting to communicate with my past self – to go through the memory of performing it in the past with each repetition of the song.
