Selbstportrait oder Peinture de sons ou bien Tonmalerei (December 1996 – June 1997) — 55′
Self-portrait or Painting of sounds or Tonmalerei
«The project to make a self-portrait implies an obvious relationship to the intimacy. This work composed with words, musics, noises and images, gradually appeared to me as a painting. I called myself in the Seventies a hyperrealist; I note now that I work the sounds like one paints.»
French-German bilingual radio piece, composed at Studio post-billig.
Commissioned by Südwestfunk.

This composition is a manner of joining again with the idea of the cycles and their hazardous superimposings explored in the Seventies, in particular in Tautologos 3. A manner of using old concerns while widening them and even by deteriorating them.
