Alvin Lucier - I Am Sitting in a Room

In 1970 Alvin Lucier a inregistrat " I Am Sitting in a Room ". Sunt intr-o camera diferita de cea in care stai tu acum e prima propozitie pe care o citeste Lucier dintr-un text care va fi play-at apoi inregistrat din nou pana cand sensul va fi distrus poate cu exceptia ritmului.

Uneori ceea ce ramane in urma e doar pulsatia nimic altceva.

Textul in original este:

"I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now. I am recording the sound of my speaking voice and I am going to play it back into the room again and again until the resonant frequencies of the room reinforce themselves so that any semblance of my speech, with perhaps the exception of rhythm, is destroyed. What you will hear, then, are the natural resonant frequencies of the room articulated by speech. I regard this activity not so much as a demonstration of a physical fact, but more as a way to smooth out any irregularities my speech might have."

Alvin Lucier - I Am Sitting in a Room, 15:23 (1969, original recording)
