The below video is an excerpt from a video piece created in collaboration with Robin Fencott. Participants in the video were asked to use the plastic cup as a musical instrument for one minute. The piece explores the plurality of approaches explored by different people given a highly constrained activity.
This work is in response to an academic paper on musical creativity which explores and quantifies the range of individual approaches to performing with a basic musical instrument.
