This short video excerpt is from the second day of studio work during the 2017 Judaica intensive lab period. It shows a moment of ‘broken’ songwork in which two people encounter radical difference in their associations linked to a particular song. Such ‘cracks’ in practice are profoundly generative for understanding how and where identity and other kinds of meaning are located in experimental practice. The original songwork video (‘conflicting associations 1’) can be found here.
