THE HUNDRED VIDEOS 21. SQUEEZING SORROW FOR AN ASHTRAY
"We know the air is filled with vibrations that we can’t hear. In ’Variations VII’, I tried to use sounds from that inaudible environment. But we can’t consider environment as an object. We know that it’s a process. While in the case of the ashtray, we are indeed dealing with an object. It would be extremely interesting to place it in a little anechoic chamber and listen to it through a suitable sound system. Object would become process; we would discover, thanks to a procedure borrowed from science, the meaning of nature through the music of objects" (John Cage) Inspired by Cage’s words, Reinke records a "scientific" experience.
