rhetororio

The name is a mixture of the term “rhetorical” and of a piece by john cage: roaratario.

The hole piece is based on a recording I made in december 2001 in berkeley, california. It has been a meeting of the moon-sect. The son of the original founder of the sect held a speech. We all have had printed copies of it. But suddenly he began to get more and more into talking off the manuscript. Although it all had been made up. So at some point he asked: do you want me to speech or preach. It has been a turning point of the whole evening. The complete composition has been made out of this sentence. By processing the original recording and layering the processed files the progress of the speech is captured in an abstract way.

The piece has been broadcasted by bayern2 artmix galery.
