      The enhanced drone of my hotel room at 4am     interiority… I believe that’s about the inability to talk about the things we wish we could but we can’t really express; things we try to express, communicate, project in a sentimental way, where sentimentality doesn’t really represent the inexplicable and it’s just a faint illusory form of it. What I’m trying...

oscillo a, b & c

Aug 29, 2014

Here is another theatre for the ear with some frantic noises and stuttering beats. I love the animated plots of these useless waves, they remind me of continuously avoiding to assert “a” will, or any formal path, relying instead on the bare existence and presence of sound and light: the audible and fluid immanence of being and time. For Nancy Lanthier’s listening eyeballs ;...
