18.30-19.00 + 20.00-20.30
Walkway on the Ponte Sisto at the Tiber River, Roma
On Monday, May 31, Hammond and Bielawa will combine these two aspects of the experiment – seating and programming. That afternoon, the chairs will be placed along the walkway on the Trastevere side of the Tiber, next to the Ponte Sisto. At the performance times, the musicians will arrive one or two at a time, over the course of seven minutes, so that it is not clear exactly when the performance has officially begun. Similarly, at the end of the 35-minute piece, performers will leave one or several at a time, so that when the piece is over, there are no musicians present.
The joint project on May 31 will be documented through video and time-lapse photography.
