About The Work

Ephemera is the result of the long-term accumulation of eclectic musical notations, gleaned from here and there in various advertisements, illustrations, menus, candy wrappings etc. These ephemera have been assembled, photographed and reproduced in a series of 28 folios. From this ensemble of printed motifs, Christian Marclay has created a musical score named Ephemera, which is intended to be played.
