Long Railing

Graham Dunning - Long Railing (still)

Running a drumstick along a long railing creating a monotonous, rhythmical sound. The railing was used as a physical score for making the sound recording, which I recorded using a hand-held audio recorder.

I also had the sound pressed to a dubplate, which I have used in various live and recorded pieces since. In 2013 I returned to the location  of the long railing to re-enact the piece, to find that sections had been removed and it was no longer possible to keep the sound unbroken; Effectively the score had been altered.
