PapierfliegerSole – a visual and sonic performance
by the writer and experimental reading artist Thomas Havlik
and the electro-noise musician Karl Kilian_fm zombimaus


PapierfliegerSole unites the live energetics of a performative-musical reading with elements of a radio play, and thus deliberately lets down expectations connected to traditional literary events, as well as to radio play studio productions.

Two different texts in one, that just as much proceed in different parallel levels of listening as they inflate and reject eachother, and bounce back, are read by one person split into two voices.

In the process, the „immaterialness“ of one of bodies, a specific of the medium radio, is used for a sonic effect. Beside all kinds of electronic choices, at least temporarily, the tape is an available instrument for the musician which edited, or as it is, he can take to pieces and reassemble.

The images provoked by text and sound reciprocally form and contain eachother. The controlled simultaneity leaves it to the listeners to listen to different, linearly told stories by switching back and forth, or to make a story of their own. In any case, the listener is under the influence of the performative presentation.

The past is blended into this recording: the saved data on the tape, the reading performance’s present, and the time of its broadcasting.
