“Even in John Cage’s work – trying to think of the sound around us as music – there is still a sound producing device, a clock or something. That was really the moment in which all this first came together: the thought about using speech, these ideas of using body, and this idea of using inanimate objects to experience music. Ever since then my work has been in that direction.”
Hinck wondered for a while if all this meant he was becoming a performance artist. But the answer was no.
“What I’m really interested in is how a composer approaches the issues of movement, of light... as a composer, not as someone working to create a theater piece,” he says. “I’m interested in taking light, physical objects, movement, the human being and actually scoring it the same way I’d score an instrument in a symphony or piano concerto.”
“I Wrote This On YOur Chest,” a piano concerto in 42 movements (color pigment, ink, iron weight, paint, paper, pen and spotlight, piano string, rope, tape loop, typewriter, and water).
