My partner and I performed Dean Rosenthal’s Stones/Water/Time/Breath yesterday at the The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida.

Dean Rosenthal’s Stones/Water/Time/Breath is experimental music in which a participant or participants choose any body of water and perform a set of actions designed to create a musical performance. It was born from an impromptu performance by the composer in May 2012 on Martha’s Vineyard that was later written down as a set of performance steps that can be performed by everyone.
Many thanks to Miko for making the post which introduced me to the work; the process was as lovingly meditative as I had hoped and I plan to perform the piece again when I am waterside and the mood strikes.

Much appreciation for picking up my slack on that one; you are truly gracious in your tireless work to let no possible punnery float by neglected.
