We to be. Once.

Elisabeth Shimana & Ludwig Zeininger - "To Be" (5'19") from Patriarchal Poetry / Dance for Daisies: Eine Revue für Gertrude (2001). From the project note: "A software-synthesizer was driven by data gained through frequency- and amplitude-analysis of these passages [from Gertrude Stein's "Patriarchal Poetry"] read aloud, only small portions of which are audible in the final mix, thus forming what could be perceived of as the revue's formal backdrop, it's imaginary rhythm track. And from time to time patriarchal poetry becomes audible." • The "textscore" is here. • And a less beat-driven section, "Let it be," is here.
