The newest of a wide family of speech loop pieces in Bosetti’s repertoire. Closely related to the work performed with the ensemble Trophies in recent EU and USA concerts.
“I like to think of this piece as a musical composition, a song, a literary essay, a poem or an unreligious mantra. It lies in between genres without embracing any of them. It came form an urgency to say and sing something that felt quite emotional for me. Since I could neither sing nor say it, it came out as an uncanny mixture of the two. I based it on a sinuous and recurring text and melody that explores the implications of repeating while making repetition its main ingredient. Repetition is the matter of our lives, of failure and birth, of dreams and pulsation.”
