30 Sep 2013 Performance @ Guggenheim The third installment of my collaboration with Florian Hecker: C.D.: A Script for Synthesis C.D. – A Script for Synthesis is a sound piece, an experimental drama, and a model of abstraction, which recalls Artaud’s Theater of Cruelty as much as Beckett’s minimalist narratives and neo-imagist poetry. It is the climactic third chapter in the trilogy of text-sound pieces Hecker has created in collaboration with the philosopher and writer Reza Negarestani (following Chimerization, dOCUMENTA (13) and Hinge, Lumiar Cité, Lisbon; both 2012), who has written a libretto/script for the performance. The conceptual point of departure is a perceptual encounter with a pink ice cube, which is dramatized as a scene in which the linguistic chimeras of scent and sound descriptions are materialized through synthetic trophies, the scale and shape of auditory objects, a Greek chorus and theatrical props. C.D. – A Script for Synthesis is an experiment in putting synthetic emptiness back into synthetic thought. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Peter B. Lewis Theater, 1071 5th Ave Saturday, November 9, 7:30 pm For more information on how to obtain tickets see HERE.
