As part of The Impossible Project we have been inviting artists to undertake 'micro-commissions'. They are either invitations to conceive of, attempt and document an attempt at An Impossible Task or to undertake a conversation with Anna Tregloan where she will attempt (the similarly impossible task) of capturing aspects of their creative endeavours in sketch form.
In order to communicate a clear musical starting point and refine the composition, which would ultimately be diffused and spread across a large outdoor space, a studio recording of the work was made. Anna Tregloan listened to this recording while Ughetti described the action of an imagined crowd and musicians. Tregloan attempted to create a visual representation of this imagined but unrealised project.
