As part of An exposition, not an exhibition, Berlin-based artist Ari Benjamin Meyers invited six Hong Kong composers to create new works for Hong Kong Solos. The scores were written specifically for an audience of 1-4 audience members and performed by selected staff members at six non-profit art organizations across the city.
From his cubicle at the M+ offices in Cyberport, pianist Tom Morgan interpreted an abstract visual score created by Shane Aspegren, titled Mantra For Improvisation To Destroy Belief In Abstraction. The interactive work imposes a starting point where the audience members communally become the central performers of the piece, forming a free-tempo chant as the basis for the soloist's improvisation.
The score is available as a limited and numbered archival print. For more information, please email shaneaspegren at me dot com.
