Reductive Journal THREE continues an exploration of relationships between text-sound under the theme, interior silence, with contributions from Lance Austin Olsen, Bruno Duplant, Jesse Goin, Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri, and Taku Sugimoto. This theme is one that has somehow been reoccurring and important since the beginning of this project. In the way that silence can be, it has been present in all issues thus far. Interior silence is born from an almost insurmountable condition that occurs when treating processes which might be called inter-permeable- between listening and reading.
In this context, we should keep in mind that the works present in this journal, beyond presenting more or less individual approaches in artistic works, attempt to bring the reader an experience that in itself does not contain any matter beyond an intima listening – a listening that requires the be-silent of the listener for proper perception. We are aware that interior silence, is almost impossible: And here it is, in this impossibility, where we stop and listen to what the artistic works tell us about reality.
Contributors were asked to present works that reflected a perception between text-sound and interior silence. These texts are not signs -from something else-, but symbols in themselves – of artistic practice underlying reality. It is in this open listening from reading what reveals the field of interior silence and the whole range of possible approaches
