The tune the old cow died of

Vernon & Burns prove to be popular with Belgian bovines...

"The tune the old cow died of" by Pacôme Béru & Yann Leguay

A listening session for cows , played on a simple turntable and removable loudspeaker which took place in a pastoral landscape reminiscent of old Flemish paintings. The title comes from the Vernon & Burn's record, played during the performance, which is also an English expression taken from an old rhyme:

"There was an old man, and he had an old cow,
But he had no fodder to give her,
So he took up his fiddle and played her the tune -
`Consider, good cow, consider,
This isn't the time for the grass to grow.
Consider, good cow, consider."

A field-performance realized on june the 20, 2009 at 4:43 am , near by : 50° 14' 24.05" N 4° 53' 31.22" E (East-Belgium)
