listening for awhile, by Alexandra spence
This text score was initially shared remotely with a group of friends/collective initiated by Johnny Chang between Auckland, Sydney, Berlin whilst we were all home-quarantining at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. The intention for the collective was to perform the same score from our separate homes and share in a moment of listening every Wednesday for the duration of the lockdown: physically separate, yet energetically together.
