Julian’s work uses the body:suit:score as a playing field: the actions of one percussionist act on the body of the other, and become a kind of instruction to play. The interest is not so much the resulting sound, but the game strategies that both players engage in. The action gets quite heated and the two musical combatants need all their keen reaction skills and sharp thinking to come out as the winner of each round.
