Jameson Feakes, Josten Myburgh & Michael Pisaro-Liu “Two Scrolls from Western Australia” CD



“when one contemplates there is no form, but when one examines, there is coherence.” – Bu Yantu, quoted by François Jullien in the great image has no form.

two scrolls in western australia was written in collaboration with jameson feakes and josten myburgh. i asked each musician to select a location in western australia and then to make a set of field recordings there at different times of day. these recordings form the basis of the two scrolls. as with scroll paintings made in china from the song dynasty onward, poetic characters (here represented by music for the two instruments) are placed above the landscape – Michael Pisano-Liu
