Chalkboard

Christian Marclay’s interactive installation Chalkboard (2010), from the Christian Marclay. Composicions exhibition, invites visitors to write notes, drawings or graffiti on a architecturally-scaled chalkboard ruled with musical staff lines. Periodically, this "score" is interpreted by musicians. Once a concert is finished, the board is cleared and the process begins again until the next. Despite being a piece of musical notation, the work subverts the classical composition and the conventional score offering this degree of freedom to the public as well as to the musicians.

Participants: Heather Roche and Eva Zöllner (clarinet and accordion); Mark Cunningham (trumpet); Ferran Fages (electric guitar); Núria Andorrà (percussion); Tom Chant (saxophone) and Barbara Held (transverse flute).

Dates: from 9 May to 18 September 2019.
