( Durational performance, outdoor version 2011 )
A single speech melody in between speaking and singing, the same used for the indoor version of “Thank you for something”, is repeated over and over by a single performer while he walks around the streets of Amsterdam, enters public spaces, stations an shops. The performer sings along a pre recorded invariable melody he can hear through an earplug while the people around him can’t figure out wether he is talking by himself or to somebody else and wether his discourse makes any sense. Once again the surrounding environment is variable and unpredictable while the performer is bound to carrying on with his invariable task.
