Robert Wyatt è stato a Edimburgo pochi giorni fa al festival Fringe in occasione dell'inaugurazione del progetto interattivo 7x7 del belga Jean Pierre Muller, cui Wyatt ha contribuito assieme a Nile Rodgers, Terry Riley, Archie Shepp e Sean O’Hagan tra gli altri. Scrive Muller: "The number seven is associated with the world of dreams. It is considered to be the most spiritual digit in our number system and also been used extensively in the allocation of orderly systems with the world we live in. The 7x7 project spans the spectrum of all things seven in a fully functioning interactive art and music event. Muller and seven legends from the world of music: Robert Wyatt, Nile Rodgers, Terry Riley, Archie Shepp, Mulatu Astake, Sean O’Hagan and Kassin have focused their attention on this highly symbolic and inspirational number in order to create a holistic system where we travel through the full spectrum of our conscious world. Each musician created an original composition in response to this new 'grammar'. Their music emerges from the sculptures as the viewer approaches and fades as they walk away".
