DDR DPRK TRAGHEIT
All along the Cold War, East Germany maintained diplomatic relations with North Korea, while West Germany maintained diplomatic relations with South Korea. Therefore a number of political and cultural parallels among the DDR and North Korea can be made.
For this piece I have collected audio samples from the DDR and the DPRK, including recordings from the loud speakers wars over the Berlin Wall and the DMZ, Radar sounds, Morse voice generators and music as a means of propaganda. I perform while falling asleep on the prepared keyboard, the weight of my elbows randomly triggers the samples while I am in a state of inertia.
