Performance Festival International Exhibition of Live Performances Streamed
Worldwideform the artists apartment on the Liverpool waterfront on the 28 April 2012 at 8.30pm.

Drawing from the 5 movements of the Beethoven Opus 132 String Quartet No. 15 in
A minor, the proposed live performance of Graceless Opus: Apartment 132 will
bring together classical and underground musicians, performers and 5 one minute
compositional structures, to create, critique and complexify the live physical
and networked transmission of truncated sound bite dialogues between 'high' and'
low' culture, between 'private' and 'public' spaces, between ‘culture’ and
‘economic’ drivers.


Moira Kenny is filming the dialogue leading up to the performance in Liverpool documenting the methodlogy of the musicians and Sam Jones practice to be screened at a later date.
