Collective Monotone

Collective Monotone No. 1
Stereo audio, 56:55

A collective soundwork partly in homage to Yves Klein’s Symphonie Monoton-Silence (1949-1961) to accompany Collective Monochrome No 26 (initiated by Billy Gruner and Sarah Keighery).
Artists were asked to submit a sustained tone of the note E of any duration. The sound could be processed in any way and was not required to be a pure tone.

The piece was made for Cementa13 at Kandos, NSW, Australia and accompanied Grunner and Keighery's Collective Monotone No. 26.

Participating Artists:
Gary Bradbury (Sydney)

The sounds were arranged and mixed by aleatory procedures, and a recording was made of 1 hour, 44minutes and 33 seconds. This is an edited version.
