In 2010, Jean-Luc Guionnet and Éric La Casa were invited by Arika to the Uninstal festival in Glasgow (Scotland) to carry out a series of recordings with some inhabitants of this city, in their home spaces.
Based on predefined rules, including the single-sequence shot as a recording method, these people became the actors in a story about their everyday life. Guionnet and La Casa considered this work as a composition under the form of a score with four phases.
1st phase: APARTMENT Recording of Apartment I II III IV
Lisa Peebles, Tim Nunn, Zoe Strachan and Silvia Sellitto
2nd phase: CONCERT Public interpretation of Apartment I II III IV
