R. Mutt – Amanda Lowe

+ + +

I have created two songs exploring the mystery, ambiguity and playfulness behind Duchamp’s signature ‘R.Mutt’. One song delves into possible meanings of ‘R.Mutt’; the other song takes on the persona of ‘R.Mutt’.

Duchamp often made complex puns bearing several meanings and associations at the same time using dierent languages; and these five letters eectively created a seminal piece of art which changed how people thought about art.

In keeping with Duchamp’s ‘instant art’ I have recorded the songs onto a mobile phone and they are exhibited/played on a screen with an elaborate golden frame around it.

I have produced a blog, documenting the process of writing the songs: fountain17.wordpress.com
