CCAOR23

This item is not in the library — it is a part of: C. Cardew (ed.), Nature Study Notes (full, 1969).


Part 1: Consideration of an object absent from the performance space (either individually — a private affair — or communally, in which case decide on an object with which all are acquainted). Make seven sounds (named North, South, East West, Space, Earth, Shadow respectively) as follows: The first sound describes the object from the front. The second sound describes the object from behind. The third sound describes the object from the right. The fourth sound describes the object from the left. The fifth sound describes the object from above. The sixth sound describes the object from below. The seventh sound describes the object as it exists in you (your regard for it, its shadow in you, what it means to you). Bear in mind the possibility that the sounds may not only describe the object but define it too.
Part 2: Departure from the object.

Notes

Absent Object Rite. Conceived originally as introductory to CCTG22
