About the work

The webcam shows us a view of a Höxter district. The music with its calm melodic pattern allows to install the listening in a duration, and let the listener build mental images and choose a point to observe in the picture. The basic material – a kind of repetitive violin theme – and the different concrete noise elements could evoke a sound picture of the past. Like memories of the old « minnesänger », lyrical poets or medieval legends. Like History layers under the triviality of the urban daily life.
