R&X | Fabien Corbeil
“My performance took place on September 23rd on a Wednesday morning.
On that day, I woke up at 6 and got ready to play music.
These were my instruments.
This was my outfit.
This is where I played.
My intentions were to record the sounds of an oddly funny violent action.
I chose that site because it’s surrounded by industrial echoey noises.
I opted for the metal xylophone for two reasons.
One it's durable enough to withstand rifle shots.
Two it’s a precaution instrument, the pellets shot at the keys could create sounds as If I was striking them with a stick.
After acquiring the xylophone, I found an interesting dichotomy between both my instruments.
They both could be considered as toys even though one could potentially fatally wound someone.
While performing my audience were a dozen truckers that role past me.
After a while, I was asked to go “play” elsewhere because the trucks were too dangerous and could flatten me if I wasn’t careful.
Everything was recorded with a Zoom recorder H4n pro.
All sound manipulation was made in F L studio.”
