Rebecca Horn / Hayden Chisholm: Music for Rebecca Horn’s installations Hardcover mit 2 Audio-CDs

In 2004 Rebecca Horn created “Light Imprisoned in the Belly of the Whale,” a work that incorporated passages of poetry as a sculptural element within a room-filling installation of words and sentences projected onto a black, reflective sheet of water. Horn’s collaborator on the project was the New Zealand-based composer Hayden Chisholm, who infused the pictorial space with sound, lending an acoustic dimension to the poetic narrative. The artists have collaborated on other projects, including Spiriti di Madreperla (2003) and Moon Mirror (2004). Music for Rebecca Horn’s Installations gives those who witnessed Horn and Chisholm’s collaborations an opportunity to re-live their visual and acoustic experience. This publication consists of two CDs in plastic sleeves with recordings of Horn’s poems for Spiriti de Madreperla and Moon Mirror, which are set to music and sung in several languages. A 16-page booklet depicts the installations in color photographs, and includes 2 CDs.
