“Deurgang” (passage) 43x25x1cm vinyl, felt, brass I received from Anna, a spectrogram and a voice-piece (I assume it is voice), which is air escaping the body. I blindfolded myself and listened to it repeatedly, the durable visual was of the spectrogram, like a curtain or barrier. The music, modulated and melodic was “undermined” by another breath or an alternate expression of the same breath, raspy guttural, sometimes gurgling, both were beautiful, I was interested in how these two modes competed with one another creating a scrim or mesh. I thought about barriers and how they inevitably become permeable, I contemplated osmosis. Orange is an attractive but clumsy colour, vinyl is obvious and clumsy like orange Felt is ancient and noble, the holes are all that hold them together.
