Suite for Bass and Ironing Bored Variation was first performed in 1983 at the University of California at San Diego and in 1984 at Randolph Street Gallery, Chicago. It is a 20-minute piece performed by six bassists under the direction of bass choirmaster Tatsu Aoki, joined by six ironers with a projected video backdrop. The bassists and ironers follow a score that structures several improvised movements linked to specific colors. For the 2024 re-enactment of the piece, Binion will perform with invited ironers and Chicago bassists Sam Wagster, Anton Hatwich, Nick Macri, Zoe Markle, and Andrew Scott Young. After the performance, the six bassists will also present a collective improvised set.
Double bill with Duras Piece.
