Ecce, sigh! Siren calls… still, I feel the same.

“Who remembers all that? History throws its empty bottles out the window.“ 

Sans Soleil, Chris Marker, 1983



A song is playing, in the background. Hey —


Still, alive.

Waste(d) land revisited.

This is an acousmatic cadavre, reassembling thoughts and samples that are rotting on a hard drive in a box, in the downloads folder of my laptop causing slow pace or being captured in the fields very soon. As if it was a prehistoric cave, creatures pass in and out. The traces of another time lie buried in the undefined terrain, but I will arrange and add yet another layer to this palimpsest of sounds and form a loop of sonic references and anecdotes, like a Stone/r/d henge in a sonic sphere. Roll out a carpet of sub frequencies! You may hear the echoes of the sirens, they speak with a German accent in their voice in dramatic tone… still, I feel the same.

With voices of Meta D-1, Gertrude Stein, Anna Oppermann, Fiona and the author and a quote by Lawrence English.


„Ecce, sigh! Siren calls… still, I feel the same.“ von Antonia Alessia Virginia Beeskow Vor ihrem Studium der Angewandten Theaterwissenschaft und dem Master in „Klang & Realität“ in Düsseldorf, studierte Antonia Alessia Virginia Beeskow zunächst Archäologie – und auch ihre künstlerische Herangehensweise beim Stück „„Ecce, sigh! Siren calls… still, I feel the same“ ist archäologisch: Sie gräbt sich durch die Schichten ihrer Festplatte, fördert längst Vergessenes zutage und arrangiert die akustischen Bruchstücke zu einem neuen Ganzen, zu einem akusmatischen Kadaver, wie sie es nennt.
