Work commentary, 2017:

In Mehrfachbelichtete Melodramen (“Multi-Exposed Melodramas”), the subject expressing itself – vocally, noisily, percussively – finds itself in an imaginary scenery of communication and everyday sound. Imitation, addition, manipulation and, not least, performative virtuosity are the instruments by whose means the listeners are invited to adopt the memory of individually experienced scenes, and to parallel them interpretatively with their own experiences and notions: to multi-expose them.
