The Listeners

ten erased compositions by Alessandro Bosetti

Video

2005

Catalogue number : 8

Alessandro Bosetti composed ten short music pieces. All between 2 and 3 minutes.
Each piece has been listened, through headphones by just one person. Every person was aware of being the only listener of that very piece and that after a first hearing the piece would have been destroyed. No score, recording, audio file or cd had been left. Part of the agreement between the composer and the listeners was not to speak about those pieces. Though, the listeners are free to speak about with other people than the composer.
