Onion Skin Song from Three Songs (1973) performance at the Museo Fortuny in Venice. Mid June 2006

Two performers stretch one long sheet of seran wrap walking away from each other for at least 3 metres.

Onion skins are dropped randomly on a plastic wrap.

A second length of seran wrap sandwiches the onion skins in place with bare feet.

Onion skin notation is held up at either end.
Either the shadow on the wall or the actual onion skins are available for sound improvisation.
Instruments in this performance are two Bean Turners and wood hens.
