‚Memories of the Signified‘ is a drawing in sound and through space. The work consists of a series of audio recordings of micro-performances, during which I proclaim all the verbs I could find in the Oxford Dictionary that relate to departure and to arrival. To produce the work I literally took the dictionary on a journey through Europe, visiting border passages, ports, bus and train stations, motorways, airstrips, waiting lounges and suburban parking lots. Whenever I found an intriguing sonic ambience I started to perform, using the unanticipated sonic qualities of those places as resonators of new meaning.
