A Study of Musical Instruments is a documentation of Therese Frisk’s first encounter with eight different instruments which results in two explorative compositions full of unexpected harmonic turns. The finished piece is a deeply intriguing listening experience where we are guided solely by Frisk’s delicate artistic intuition. Here follows Frisk’s own description of the project:
A Study of Musical Instruments is a project that consists of eight videos and sound recordings in which I make improvised music with instruments that I have never played before. Each video begins and ends in the same way, with the camera pointed at my black pants. I walk up to the instrument, play for 20 minutes and then walk back towards the camera.
