“ PRAELUDERE is on my table, and open, accompanied me into the new year. I like to read these pages, to think about, scores and poems. And to think, that what looks more like a score is a poem and vice versa. (Jürg Frey 2014).

PRAELUDERE (ballades form the 20th century) consists of a set of four verbal scores that can be activated inside or outside, sitting, standing or walking, alone or with others, with or without instrument.
Sitting still somewhere, with the PRAELUDERE score to map where I am, what I see / hear / feel, using drawing, writing and voice to express and preserve that fleeting experience.

A body of work (videos, prints, artist books, performances) using as a prompt the fact that in French une ballade is both a walk and a song. Writing and walking are understood here as simultaneous acts of marking and reading (space).
