Variations 2 with thanks to Christoph Schiller
Variations 2 was a project based on the simple but brilliant structure devised by Christoph Schiller for his solo CD ‘Variations’. That CD contained a series of 5-minute pieces which were repeated and linked together into a kind of chain structure (see Structure below).
For Variations 2 rather than producing a solo, Christoph chose ten musicians who each recorded a 5-minute piece for the project. These pieces were then linked together and overlaid in the chain structure explained below, producing a work which lasts just under 55 minutes, and which you can listen to here: Variations 2b
The piece sounds wonderfully coherent, especially considering that each musician had only heard the piece that immediately precedes their own contribution, and the canonical structure is very clear.
Warm thanks to all the musicians involved.
