Somewhere in Time consists of a series of turntables that challenges time in a very radical way. The turntables, which are beautifully crafted in dark-stained MDF has more in common with sculpture than musicality and will only play Tyrolean music at the sluggish speed of 4RPM!
This is where the work finds its ressonace; in the dissolution of time or maybe rather an extension of time to the point where time-based communication is dissolved and remains meaningless. But because this meaninglessness exists in several versions qua the number of players, the loss of meaning is thus organized into a system that creates a new meaning in it’s own right. A musical near-vacuum that has more in common with the pause than the beat, a sound installation of crackles, distorted tones and lost bars that re-joins in new harmonics, creating a sound universe parallel to the musical.
