Citron trees. On tiny salt lake. Hovering on glass. Why?
Snails eat citron trees but don’t swim in salt water.
Trees die if roots connect with salt water.
The lavender is just curious.
Projects ‘helping Africa’ with patronising air dropped rice and powdered milk is an european faux pas.
We need mutual respect, open borders and trade; this is long overdue.
What comes up …
Had to find this locked up on the tube. Maybe someday we can find more of such things elsewhere too.
Some who may find their way into the work “Te quiero” may wonder about the title, the design of sound, the languages and so on.
It is not quite what it maybe looks like.
Let us take two examples:
In the begining you hear an answering machine.
However, every sound put in there was written down and then ‘performed’ from a score. ‘Beeps’ are not ‘beeps’ but someone whistling and so on.
Towards the end you hear what many will consider a foolish movie cliche: thunder.
However, there is no thunder.
That sound does not at all originate from recordings of thunder.
It is not from a ‘sample effect library’ nor is it from a field trip with funny hats recording hurricanes or whatever.
What it is is sound from a piano string manipulated with filters and distorted, composed from the material in ‘the movie.’
In fact all is contemplated like this. As a painting by Leonardo, a technique of meticulous drawing up from scratch on canvas: a vision so that in the end it may look like a ‘banale photo.’
