Air Compositions from 1-6
I am a Record
Recorded in London in 1992

Experiments into documenting air movements in and around Euston station in London in 1991 led to the composition of a series of six short melodies. There was a particular spot on the station concourse where two currents met and created an eddy. The scores were made by throwing a number of paper arrows into wind eddies and photographing the arrows movements. The photographs were then placed on musical scores and a note was made wherever the point of an arrow appeared on the line of the score. This is a record of six ‘air’ melodies played on the piano.
