Audio Drawings is a series of audio installations that I’ve been working for a while that use either Binaural sound or Multi-Channel audio installations. For this project I invited saxophonist Gui from the Portuguese band Xutos & Pontapés.

Audio Drawings (QUAD) it’s an adaptation of Samuel Beckett’s Quad television play (1981) recorded in Binaural for 4 invisible saxophonists in which each of the saxophone player plays one single note in a predetermined rhythm through the path specified by Beckett. Following this logic, player 1 follows path 1 and plays a D, player 2 follows path 2 and plays a E, player 3 follows path 3 and plays a A and player 4 follows path 4 and plays a D. The work follows Beckett’s play structure and keeps on repeating itself in an infinite loop.
