Unique performance

Following his iconic work The Clock, artist Christian Marclay created Everyday (2011), after a residency at Aldeburgh Music. The musical performance is based on a set of short film clips he collected and re-edited. Fragments of films were seeds from which the performance evolved during rehearsals.. This work follows in the footsteps of “video scores” in which Marclay used the video to convey instructions to musicians, these projections present visual stimuli for some of his favorite improvisers, providing them with visual cues suggesting emotion, energy, rhythm, pitch, volume and duration.

In Everyday found footage is used with and without sound, providing a framework in which live music can develop. Marclay always enjoyed blurring the boundaries between music and art, sound and image, structure and chaos. The everyday embrace them all.


The commission of Everyday was supported by Henry Moore Foundation
