Synthetic Strings, 2022

For this work, I combined two recordings that at first glance have little to do with each other. Recordings are always the first step of manipulation. I go far in my edits and look for the point where something new arises. A new source.
Every recording is a broken mirror. Every mirror is a change.

When image and sound are strongly alienated, they can constantly alternate as each other's bearers of meaning.

For the sound I recorded the cellist Julia Kotarba improvising with extended techniques on her instrument.

Every touch is a cut,

every cut is a wound,

every wound is an opening.

Through the opening

you can see inside.

Seeing is healing

and healing is changing.
