Audio Commentary

performance w. video / sound
2008 / 2011

Full and final title is “Audio Commentary on the Céline Dion Field Recordings”.

A performance where I use the format of an “audio commentary”, usually found as a bonus feature on DVDs. Here I read a text along individual sound recordings which I have previously used when making music. “Depending on the nature of the music, and upon the person providing the spoken dialogue, it can add a wealth of informative, entertaining infor- mation about a piece of music of which most audience members would not be aware.” This work comes out of a desire to focus on the context of various recordings. It is also an effort to try to tell too much, not keeping secrets. I have performed this Audio Commentary in both Swedish and English.
