Artist Statement:


    sein & zeit is a performance piece that features the recital of a percussionist: on stage. It both breaks down and controls television broadcasts.

    The physical movement of the player is merely a recital for his own benefit, however to the machines it is an operation. In this regard the linear musical score dictates the music, but at the same time represents instructions for the machines. Once the player becomes familiar with his dual role, he begins to improvise. In other words, he becomes the operator of the system.
