For the Perambulator group show of "New Work" in Sheffield, Andy set up a table in the corner of the Showroom bar and arranged contact microphones, a bike wheel, thumb and toy pianos, pens and the like in order to play music. Cards were distributed round the bar inviting those who found them to complete them with generic personal data and hand them to Andy.
Using a pre-determined system Andy transcribed the details into sounds that were then added at specified points in a composition performed and recorded throughout the day. In an effort to distinguish this piece from his past work Andy also shot the process to make a filmic accompaniment for the resulting sound-collage.
