Space-sound composition in book form – always first edition – for one performer, a score and a microphone
The entire space-sound composition is recorded unnoticed and played backed in the end. Like a reverberation, drawn from a vast memory store, the preceding event is recapitulated and distorted medially by microphone and loudspeaker colouration as well as the spatial and recording perspective. The performer sits mute, transforms into a recalled moving-image given its shape by the acoustic recording. Performance and live moments merge in the recording and become a medially shaped and translated space-sound object oscillating between experience and memory, presence and absence, theatre and radio. Regardless of the intimacy and the uniqueness of what has just been experienced, the media memory apparatus unwinds the “live” moment, even using the same spatial constellation. By this, it breaks the spell and steals its emotional charge.
On the floor a heap of paper scraps.
