Ann Cotten & me worked together on this prose&music.
It was an experiment we wanted to try.
“Noto” is a short prose from Ann’s “Der Schaudernde Fächer” (Suhrkamp 2013). Available in German only at the moment.
The cooperation process itself was full of augmentation.
We recorded Ann reading, then I created the soundtrack on top, then we met again to rerecord the voice on the music rap-style, then again I changed the music to fit better, etc.
What you finally hear is a piece where story, music & voice are interdependent, wrapped up inside each other.
All my English friends without German inclinations can listen to the instrumental version. The imprint of the story & voice is intramural.
The full version including text is only available for one year –
afterwards only the instrumental remains!
