Walking Music

Video and Sound

This is a piece based on the natural rhythm of footsteps. Here's how the music is composed:

  1. Shoot a video of three people walking alongside each other. It is important to walk naturally and avoid any musical intentions at this stage.
  2. Each pair of legs is assigned a voice, each played by a musician. The video is played back and each musician plays a note everytime a step is made.
  3. Throughout the piece, for the sake of clarity, voices enter one by one (whenever they see fit) starting from the person closest to the camera.
