"Intervals" is essentially a process work that can be reinterpreted for any number of instruments and potential audiences. The process is as follows:
Musicians, take on the role of buskers, and are positioned apart from each other on a thoroughfare. The players play or sing interrelated parts to the same choice of songs, accompanying each other in unison throughout. As people pass by they glitch and skip in the manner of a scratched c.d. This iteration of notes, riffs and lyrics is triggered by the movement of people past each of the players. The skipping continues until the chosen person has passed. Both musicians only use the people in front of them to activate the skipping, therefore both performers skip at different times and for different durations. On the passing of one or more people, the performers use a middle point, or person, from a group as a trigger for the process. After skipping both players, as best as is humanly possible, try to return to the point at which they began skipping and disruption occurred, aiming to reach unison once more and resume playing normally. The process demands concentrated involvement from the musicians as they are asked to be both listener and performer at the same time, maintaining the progression of the songs whilst stuttering and skipping as a result of movement around them. The music serves an impersonal, repeating accompaniment for the viewer/listener's present, where they subconsciously become performers as they disturb the flow of the music.
