Ordinal 5

Ordinal 5 from Janet Parrott on Vimeo.
Ordinal 5 was a collaborative project with mathematician Brian Rotman and choreographer Jeanine Thompson. It was performed on five occasions over the weekend of the the 17th November 2011 at Tate Modern, London.

The soundtrack for the piece is below. As the original piece was mixed for an ambisonic system, this stereo version only approximates the performance audio (you could try running around your speakers in figures of eight if you like).

The loose and lowslung band recording features myself on guitar, Aram Zarakian on drums and John Wells on bass. This recording was then taken to five locations around the area of Tate Modern and re-recorded in situ, each location representing each synchronous point of the ordinal number "5".
