While Listening 

"...art is the result of a deeply personal, infinitely complex, and still essentially mysterious, exploration of experience. No words will ever touch it."

George Brecht

When learning a second language new folders of analogies are created while a multiplicity of meaning beyond the formal definitions of words can be savoured. I am reminded of what Barthes, referring to listening, called a 'shimmering of signifiers'.

While Listening explores the relationship between sound and meaning on the common ground between a text score and a poem.

A realisation by Ryoko Akama is available from Verz Imprint.
