In memoriam Éric Gaudibert 

...hat also der Geist die Bewegung seines Gestaltens beschlossen... 
(... The spirit also concluded the movement of his figures...
Georg W. Hegel, The Phenomenology of Spirit 

I found the title of this piece while I was making it, when the first ideas are put into perspective by the work. It is a quote from a Beckett poem, Serenade I, which evokes at the same time my work on sound objects in a context of complex repetition, a recurring sound and the staging of the energy used by the performer’s body in the making of the sound. Finally, it alludes to an obsessive way of working with sound material. 

Limae labor. Latin: the le work. Allusion to Horace, Ars Poetica, 291–92 (Samuel Beckett, Les Os d’Écho et autres précipités, Les Éditions de Minuit, 52).
