Syntax of Care

Track 1:

This first track is a requiem to all who lost their lives during the pandemic (that is not over), and at the same time raises the question: what can we learn from these experiences of loss? How can we avoid that each new gesture causes more and more destruction? This first track is inspired by Bojana Kunst’s “Beyond the time of the right care: A letter to the performance artist”.

Track 2:

In the second track-fragment of this work in process, Levi-Strauss’s anecdote is told from a new, third and robotic perspective, no longer that of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, or that of the conquerors and colonizers, but a third voice without a face and without a body, and that colonizes our souls while the world around is indeed disappearing.

Track 3:

The third track is a counterpoint to the Alvin Lucier performance-audio piece: “I am sitting in a room”.  Here the indifference to the frequencies of the context and to the other are presented with its blindness about other modes of life. It also quotes a small fragment of John Berger’s description of Bruegel’s Icarus.
