Ammunition Composition (for piano), Riverside Studios, Floor 2



 Music Stand, target paper, audio composition and speaker

A rifle is fired ten times into two sheets of target paper by the artist under professional supervision. The target paper has several rows of blank piano staves printed onto it and, as such, the bullets create notional 'semibreves' when puncturing the paper. The procession of holes is subsequently interpreted as a series of minor chords by the artist on an out-of-tune piano.
