2020_0920 BOUND BY YOUR OWN WORDS

On 20 September 2020, I created five sound pieces and sent them on audio cassettes to five elected officials. The pieces were created in a way that their public statements from the past would be revealed in a spectrum analysis of each piece, bracketed by the repeated phrase “You are bound by your own words.”

The five pieces have only been heard by myself and a cat who often resides in my studio. You will not be able to listen to them unless they have served their purpose; that would rob them of their impact. For that same reason I will not name the five elected officials here.

I don’t think the spectrum analyses have the same weight, as they are documentation and not pieces on their own. If you are interested, here they are. Each has the text twice, one for the left channel and one for the right channel.
