Spirit of Rice

a soundpiece in 17 sequences about concentration and non-comprehension
August - December 2009

"Concentration“ and "non-comprehension“ are my strongest impressions of an abidance in China in 2009. It’s not the language but the circumstance that cultures are non-communicable in the relation 1 : 1. The results are funny, corybantic, disfunctional or phantastic. And if something doesn’t function any more, something new may be generated – sometimes...

 

My soundpiece is based on the numbers 4 (in China "unlucky number“), 8 ("absolute harmony“), 9 ("lucky number“) and 17 (8 + 9 or 8 + 1 + 8). For the period of 8 days consecutively all in all 17 short sequences of the piece will be presented on this website. The project starts at August 17 and ends nearly at the end of the year at December 30, 2009.

 

Please don’t use bad speakers for listening (like the integrated ones in a laptop) – better use headphones. And please don’t put chopsticks in your ears while listening.

 

Enjoy listening – best wishes

Heinz Weber
