composition for a wall marked for demolition
as mountains wash down to the sea
A response to Letters, the sound installation Composition also creates a remote tether to fleeting actions and architecture, this time using immaterial voice as a visceral instrument to extend the story into an existing building in old East Berlin. Listeners are drawn to the edges of the room by the whispers of sound objects buried within, putting their ears to the wall to search this invisible sound cloud for points where a voice or melody momentarily comes into focus. Demolition pending, the cloistered space inside the wall brims with harmonic, historic and mythic accumulation – soon to be set free, soon to take to the streets.
