! ? WHATS IT ALL ABOUT, SIK ! ? ( 2 )
Dear Professor Loyne ( name & address withheld )
My understanding of THE FOUR SUSANS project and the four constraints put on the four sets of muso-composers and, consequentially, the four sets of viz-artistes, is as follows:
The musicians were asked to work within four given criteria
- see Koo, Aug 12
Taking these conditions into account, and placing them within a pseudo-math frame, we formulated four further butt
appropriately-related constraints within which the visual artists would operate.
- see Koo, Aug 12 also.
In a nutshell, this is what I have construed from all that schamuddle:
? ! WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT, SIK ? ! ( 1 )
SL : I'm writing to you, Ms ?Ynnit, because I'm so well aware of the
present confusion surrounding The Four Susans' farango;
i.e. the nature of the imposed FOUR VISUAL CONSTRAINTS
in relation to the previous FOUR MUSICAL CONSTRAINTS.
SL : So I thought this-hole-kaboodle might need some elaboration.
SL: So, anyhoo, here goes:
?!What's it all mean, Kolee, eh?
Seriously, I mean ' ?what's it all mean'

THE FOUR SUSANS FARAN-GO
THE FOUR CONSTRAINTS PUT TO THE FOUR MUSICIAN-COMPOSERS
EACH & IN THEIR UNIQUE WAY CREATING
AN ORIGINAL & SEASONAL SUSAN :
1. Three shifting, musical references to be considered in turn by each of the four ensembles.
2. Each original, seasonal composition will last 17 mins in total, constituting three movements of either 5 or 7 minutes duration.
3. The numbers 5 and 7 to play a key part in the four musical compositions.
4. Each ensemble will begin their composition at their appropriate solstice/equinox
and pass their completed work to the subsequent ensemble at the next
THE FOUR CONSTRAINTS PUT TO THE FOUR VISUAL ARTISTS
EACH & IN THEIR UNIQUE WAY CREATING
AN ORIGINAL AND SEASONAL SUSAN .
These constraints refer to the component parts
of the SOLE piece created by each vis-artist.
The challenge for the artist be to create
ONE whole work that embody
1. a VARIABLE component
This to take into account the artist's personal compass point,
Vivaldi, and the work of ONE other of The 4S viz-artistes
It will embrace both Form & Content
2. & 3. EASY & DIFFICULT components
One of these to emphasise Form, the other Content
One to reference 5 & 7 , the other 17
One to pay heed to to the approp. element,
the other to the approp. temperament
One may be "easy" for the artist, the other "difficult"
4. a CONSTANT component
Given season = Winter
( beginning & end of story )
To embrace both Form & Content
