Long Distance Sitting Piece
Untitled Sit for Your Aetheric Body by Michelle Nagai.
This work is one in a series of sitting pieces. A collection of (usually live) performance works, these sitting pieces share several common themes, one of which is the presence of the performer and the listener in one “space” together. This broadcast’s subtitle, Untitled Sit, is the generic label for a series of compositions originally devised for live performance in private homes. Each work, created and performed by the composer, is centered around the presence of a still and silent seated figure in close physical proximity to the audience. Variations on the basic form are permitted, and in all cases, a free-form exchange of sensory information is encouraged between performer, viewer and environment. This is an interactive radio broadcast.
