Bite Size Theory: Is It My Body?

“For me, music is much more of an area where ritual can happen, which is completely different from how I think about art making. It’s something that I don’t think successfully exists anymore. Music is very much about the spatial situation, and the body, and how the body affects sound, and movement affects sound, and how the audience is a willing partner in making it all come together. By agreeing to enter the space, the audience is almost confirming that what you’re doing is music, or at least that it’s a performance. It wouldn’t be the same without the audience.
