SFMoMA - Alexander Calder Lone Yellow, 1961

As discussed in my previous post, Haiku, Mobiles and Earle Brown, the individual recordings that constitute Sometimes the Rain is Hard to See (9 Haiku) can be performed as a mobile. So just for fun I encoded mp3 versions of the eleven haiku I recorded and set up players from there here. So you can create your own mobile version of this piece.

Update:
(I’ve moved the players under the fold since they load every time the front page is visited. So open the post to make your own realization of Sometimes the rain is hard to see (9 haiku).

Pictured above is the complete Eleven Clouds. A confession: throughout the course of the project, even as limited as each release was, one copy was held back for the archive” . Said archive is pictured above. This was done with the intention that this archive would end up in the hands of a single individual, so there would be one person, beyond the artist, with all of the releases” . It has been decided that the complete”  Eleven Clouds Archive will be sent to a randomly selected individual who has inquired after the final Eleven Clouds release …and yet. That release, as stated in the press release, is available to any who ask and from that list a single person shall be selected to receive not only …and yet but the entire Eleven Clouds Archive“¡ .

As of the writing of this post there are still copies of …and yet available. So strike while the iron is hot! However all people who inquire after this release, including those that exceed the number of available copies will be entered in the drawing for the complete archive. So there is absolutely no reason not to take the plunge. This offer is open to anyone worldwide with no restrictions including previous recipients of other Eleven Clouds releases“¡ .

”  Caveats
1) Of course there is only one real copy of 100 Black Clouds, a unique puzzle box filled with undisclosed objects. However this archive includes the music, presented in the same four disc format of the original release. It has been housed in a vinyl pocket with a photo of the original release
2) Likewise 47° 32′ 25.80″ N / 121° 54′ 32.0″ W really only exists as a micro-cassette buried on a riverbank (perhaps) in the Cascade Foothills. In this case the archive contains the simultaneous recording that was made with a voice recorder. Again a custom sleeve was generated with the promotional artwork.
3) The pictured Vertical Landscape is not the one included in the archive. The archive version is Vertical Landscapes 1 which had been wrapped up securely in brown paper for its journey to the east and was not unwrapped for this photo.

“¡ Additional Caveats
A list has been kept of who has received which release for the entire project. If the winner of the archive has previously acquired Eleven Clouds releases said releases will be excluded from the archive as sent to them. These releases will be randomly sent to other recipients of …and yet who of course also do not already own said release.
