about the record

A performed index to a body of artwork called Obstacle Corpus that encompasses drawing, writing, photographic and book works, video and sound.

For the recording, Rick Myers alternated between two pianos played at once while performing a spoken text. The text was written in two parts, using the titles of 75 so-called 'Obstacle' artworks made during 2019, dispersed into a new text entitled 'Field' that was written in the form of a drawing.

Tape recordings of the performance were exposed to magnetic fields and amplified back through a piano using electromagnetic and physical contact with its strings, making a circuit that occasionally emitted sparks while short-circuiting during the recording.
