Violin Film # 1 (Playing The Violin As Fast As I Can)

1967-68, 10:54 min, b&w, sound, 16 mm film on video

Violin Film #1 (Playing the Violin as Fast as I Can), is one of several 1967-68 films featuring Nauman's violin-playing, in which the production of sound is subjected to procedural strategies that problematize its status as music and performance. In what could be considered a further displacement, the soundtrack to this film was included in Nauman's Record (1969), a limited-edition vinyl-LP.
