Product Description

This record was produced as part of the solo exhibition of Petra Köhle and Nicolas Vermot-Petit-Outhenin "Blue skies becoming almost black." at the Galerie Annex 14 in Zurich.
Page A of this record contains a recording by the composer and double bass player Tobias von Glenck and was made as an improvisation during the opening of the exhibition. The starting point for the improvisation was a score of twelve monochrome blue photographs installed in the exhibition, structured into four overlapping constellations. The monochromes are based on the cyanometer developed in the 18th century by Horace-Bénédict de Saussure, a colour scale quantifying the intensities of the blue sky.
The recording of the improvisation was transcribed after the concert by Rätus Flisch, double bass player and professor at the Zurich University of the Arts. Page B was created as an interpretation of this notation and was played again by Tobias von Glenck and recorded by Adrian Scarpatetti in the same exhibition.
