Presentation of Brandon Locher‘s piece Conversations “Revisited” (link)
Curator and project management: Tommi Brem
Curated with: Petra Schmitt

The photo of Brandon on the table is by Olivia Locher.

From the artists website: “This newly revisited and extended sound piece consists of a serial chain of phone calls. The first without a response on the other side is recorded. The confused answerer repeating, “Hello? Hello?” is then used to playback in a new call to another randomized receiver. That person’s response is then taped and played back for another confused recipient, over and over again…”

To present this sound-piece adequately, we connected a stereo to a vintage telephone. People could sit down in the comfy chair, pick up the phone and “listen in.”

You can listen to the piece here.
