The Speaker feat. Valerio Tricoli, Pan Daijing und Werner Dafeldecker
The Speaker is a composition for one vocalist and a six channels acousmonium diffusing electronic sound, and could be described as a form of "aural theatre".
Largely based on recordings of vocal improvisations, or rather self investigations through spoken language and singing by Pan Daijing, The Speaker explores the interlocking themes of solipsism, paranoia, identity within an artificial system of representation, to stage an internal world dominated by the awareness of an inherent lack of meaningful connections between the "facts" that make up one's reality: a dis-integrated world, a series of disconnected monads floating in one's Void, which don't seem to make any sense other then the bare fact that they exist. However, the Void is here not the opposite of "full", but a necessary space of vitality, where facts are also possibilities which can keep on renewing, where nothing can be simply classified, arrested or reified.
