reciprocum – lp


“A RECIPROCAL ACTION OR ARRANGEMENT INVOLVES TWO PEOPLE OR GROUPS OF PEOPLE WHO BEHAVE IN THE SAME WAY OR AGREE TO HELP EACH OTHER AND GIVE EACH OTHER ADVANTAGES” (CAMBRIDGE DICTIONARY). THE OXFORD DICTIONARY POINTS OUT A DIFFERENT MEANING, FOCUSING ON THE SYLLABLE RE MEANING BACK AND THE SYLLABLE PRO MEANING FORWARD. MUSIC PERFORMED TOGETHER IN THE PAST BUILDS THE SOURCE MATERIAL FOR A COMPOSITION THAT EMBRACES THE FACT THAT IN THE ACT OF MUSIC CREATION ALL MUSICIANS INVOLVED GROW RECIPROCALLY. THE LIVED NOW FORMULATES THE NOTION OF PRESENT/PRESENCE AND WRITES THE FUTURE NOW.
THE ALBUM CONSISTS OF MUSIC CHOSEN FROM A POOL OF RECORDINGS MADE OVER A TIME SPAN OF 10 YEARS AND ACCORDING TO ITS EXPRESSION COMPOSED ‘TOGETHER’. ALL OF THE MUSIC WAS CREATED THROUGH A PRACTICE OF COMBINING THE COMPOSITIONAL AND THE PERFORMATIVE ACT. THE ALBUM MAKING PROCESS CONSISTS OF TWO LEVELS: THE MUSIC CREATED IN THE PAST FUNCTIONS AS MATERIAL AND IS PUT INTO FORM THROUGH THE INSPIRATION IT PROVIDES. THIS MUSIC WITNESSES THE TRUST BETWEEN THE CREATORS IN THE ACT OF DOING AND ON A FURTHER STEP ITS AFFIRMATION TO THE RE-CONTEXTUALIZATION.
