ways of remembering music (2018)

For speaker and one or more musicians, to a text by James King.

First performed 22nd of September at The Glassworks, Derry, Ireland by James King, Peter O'Doherty and Amanda Koser.

1) ORIGINAL TEXT
There are two ways of encoding and remembering music. The first process is known as relative pitch and refers to a person's ability to identify he intervals between given tones. The music is learned as a continuous succession of intervals. The second process is known as absolute pitch and refers to a person's ability to name or replicate a tone without reference to an external standard.
