Erratum Musical) belongs to the series of notes and projects that Duchamp started to collect in 1912 and which led to the Large Glass. It was neither published nor exhibited during Duchamps life. There are many notes and projects, each dealing with a different task. They are difficult material to work with, as there are no comments or explanations by Duchamp to assist with interpretation. Like many of them The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors Even. Erratum Musicalis unfinished and leaves many questions unanswered. Even so, it provides enough information for a successful realization. There are two parts to the manuscript. One part contains the piece for a mechanical instrument. The piece is unfinished and is written using numbers instead of notes, but Duchamp very clearly explains the meaning of those numbers, which makes it very easy to transcribe them into notes. He also indicates the instrument(s) on which it should be performed: player piano, mechanical organs or other new instruments for which the virtuoso intermediary is suppressed. the second part contains a description of the compositional system. Duchamps title for the system is: An apparatus automatically recording fragmented musical periods. The apparatus composing the piece is comprised of three parts: a funnel, several open-end cars, and a set of numbered balls. Each number on a ball represents a note (pitch) -- Duchamp suggested 85 notes according to the standard range of a piano of that time; today, almost all pianos have 88 notes. The balls fall through the funnel into the cars passing underneath at various speeds. When the funnel is empty, a musical period is completed. Realization for alto flute, trumpet, trombone, celesta, and marimbaphone by Petr Kotik. S.E.M. Ensemble 50 1887 1968 Marcel Duchamp images/artists/Duchamp.jpg France 1241 Erratum Musical - France 1913 unspecified images/works/Duchamp-1913-Erratum.gif Erratum Musical is written for three voices, included in the Green Box, which Duchamp published in 1934. It is undated, but has always been ascribed as having been written in Rouen in 1913. It was probably written during one of Duchamps visits to his family, as his parents and sisters lived there. Duchamp wrote the piece for his two sisters and himself--each part is inscribed with a name: Yvonne, Magdelaine, Marcel. The three voices are written out separately, and there is no indication by the author, whether they should be performed separately or together as a trio. In composing this piece, Duchamp the made three sets of 25 cards, one for each voice, with a single note per card. Each set of cards was mixed in a hat; he then drew out the cards from the hat one at a time and wrote down the series of notes indicated by the order in which they were drawn.

According to Arturo Schwarz, the piece was written sometime during 1912 - 1920 /21, although 1913 is the most probable year. The Musical Sculpture is similar to the Fluxus pieces of the early 1960s. These works combine objects with performance, audio with visual, known and unknown factors, and elements explained and unexplained. A realization of such a piece can result in an event / happening, rather than a performance. 50 1887 1968 Marcel Duchamp images/artists/Duchamp.jpg France 3663 Une Bruit Secret Sculpture France 1916 images/works/Duchamp-1916-Bruit.jpg 50 1887 1968 Marcel Duchamp images/artists/Duchamp.jpg France 3925 Anemic Cinema Film France 1926 images/spacer.jpg video/Duchamp-1926-Anemic-Cinema.mpg 50 1887 1968 Marcel Duchamp images/artists/Duchamp.jpg France 2514 THE CREATIVE ACT CD Belgium 1957 Sub Rosa SR57 images/works/Duchamp-1957-Creative.gif Edited by Marc Dachy, this first cd devoted exclusively to Marcel Duchamp brings some 50 of very rare documents, all of which are crucial not only in to understand Duchamp s work bur also to gasp the rebellious, unconventional, anticonformist spirit that has always been there but in the Zurich of 1919 took the absurd name of dada.
