Elaine Mitchener performing No! by Christian Marclay

Sharing the film we made with Christian Marclay featuring experimental vocalist Elaine Mitchener performing the graphic score No!

Conceived by Marclay as a graphic score for solo voice, No! is composed of comic book fragments that portray vocal utterances, facial expressions, and body movements. Interpreted by Mitchener, these sounds and actions generate the performance.

This film was commissioned by Fraenkel Gallery (San Francisco) in connection with their 2021 Christian Marclay exhibition and was shot at Call and Response Studios in Somerset House, London.
