IRRESPONSIBLE FORMS_01 / RCA ( London, UK)
This piece of music, titled “Irresponsible form_01”, is the result of using an erased page of a book as a notation to feed a music software online.
The erased text was originally a printed page from the book “The responsibility of forms: critical essays on music, art, and representation”, by Roland Barthes (1985). All the words and content in that page has been erased except for the punctuation marks and the title, which remain as the only visible marks left on the blank page.
The resulting audio recording captures, therefore, the husk of (Barthes) writing, after all its content has been obliterated and then read with a free music software online as sound.
