Cut & Splice: From the Seven Days began today, in a small, sparsely furnished flat in Beckton. Composers and performers Matthew Lee Knowles and Neil Luck began the piece Gold Dust, a four-day fasting and meditation piece that will climax in a five minute performance at Wilton's Music Hall on Friday 24th October. The performers will be blogging their experiences at http://cutandsplice.com for the duration.
Gold Dust is part of Stockhausen's Aus Den Sieben Tagen (From the Seven Days) instructional score, made up of 14 pieces that will all be performed as part of Cut & Splice: From the Seven Days this Friday and Saturday, by a huge collection of some of Europe's best performers, plus a special guest appearance by David Behrman.
