LINES AND DRONES
Invited by Gaspar Claus' for his "One Night Stand" project, Clara Claus collaborated with Bryce Dessner on a nine-minute Graphic Score, performed at Littlefield. Claus created a black ink drawing of a paper roll and filmed it scrolling. Bryce invited all participating musicians in a recording studio to individually respond to the Graphic Score. For the performance the same musicians improvised live together, responding to the same Graphic Score video, accompanied by the soundtrack of a mix of all individual musical responses created by Dessner.
