Last week Craig and I undertook a site visit to Symphony Hall and plotted an orchestral treasure hunt adventure there. Simon Ford, who had been put on stand-by, undertook late night vigils creating detailed vinyl representations of a vast array of instruments. Early this week I did a late night shift cutting all the vinyl and ‘picking out’ the unwanted vinyl and tonight Craig, Denise and I started the sticking job.
It’s a demanding sticking job because on glass the smallest imperfections of application are visible and I, in my late night delirium earlier in the week, make things massively more difficult than they should have been. By rolling up the vinyl I made applying the backing paper (which Craig and I did late on Tuesday) much more difficult than it should have been.
On Friday we finish the job and The Orchestra Dream opens at Symphony Hall on Saturday.
