dialogue #13 ‘poetry of conjectures’


‘Intentions’ is a score that consists of a set of slogans promoting the real estate newest yewelleries on the market of Zurich and London. Each slogan is devided by three blanks.

My research began by analizing the offers of major real estate businesses in Zurich and London. It’s use of language astonished me. My interest goes for the exact moment when these businesses need or want to transform their visions and ideas into language. What kind of meaning do they translate?
From reading it I expected a diverse use of language regarding the difference of these two countries and also regarding the different borrows in which they’re selling properties. None of the two was the case. Instead, I thought to have discovered a generic and neutral language that is applicable in every circumstance. Repetition over and over transforming the diverse possible meanings into something that resembles an ancountable noun where the words begin to loose their linguistical properties.

Of such completeness that I dare say: “the word means nothing more than the sound it makes!”

Playing instructions: it is wished that musician take the feeling generated by the lyrics of the piece as a starting point to develop their interpretation.

Prof.dr. Alberta (Quenell, KD), at his desk in room GH21.3, referring to the correlation between material wealth and urbanization, conjectures: “business, in a large sense, seems to dictate much of our everyday lives, even the need to inform the ones affected by spacial transformations within what used to be called neighborhoods. The author creates a pseudo-scene filled with a hotchpotch of colloquial clichés, perhaps to infer a basic pattern or to show that not much will change after all when it comes to peoples livelihoods, except the shape of the place where this manifests, so as to simulate an obvious reality for some, elusive for others. In any case a reality which perpetuates itself by its actors. Even the stake-holders executing their ideas. The potential is thus in most cases brought forth by the actual.”
