THE TUNE THE OLD DIED OF

 

"the tune the old cow died of"
by pacôme béru & yann leguay

a field-performance realized on june the 20, 2009 at 4:43 am , near by :
50° 14' 24.05" n 4° 53' 31.22" e (east-belgium).

a listening session for cows , played on a simple turntable and removable loudspeaker taking place in a pastoral landscape reminding the old flemish paintings. the title comes from the vernon & burn's record, played during the performance, which is also an english expression taken from an old rhyme :
"there was an old man, and he had an old cow,
but he had no fodder to give her,
so he took up his fiddle and played her the tune -
`consider, good cow, consider,
this isn't the time for the grass to grow.
consider, good cow, consider."
an advice instead of relief; remonstrance instead of help. as st. james says (ii. 15, 16) : “if a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say to them, depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?” your words are : the tune the old cow died of.
