The piece „50 Shades Of White“ is performed by 55 musicians all dressed in white on a white stage – faces painted white – in a strong white light all sharing a white plastic saxophone – playing one sound at a time – every minute – passing the instrument from one musician to the next while moving in slow motion – when all 55 players have made their sound – the piece is over and they leave the stage and close all doors and turns of the lights.

The audience is left in the darkened room for at least an hour before being let out one by one.

How would you feel being the last one to be led out of the room?




nothing amplified a million times

becomes a bigger nothing


living in bubbles

time slowing down

becomes a microscope


time it self amplified

until it is a moment so big


surrounding us

from all insides


the creatures dancing their being

the creatures being their dance

the dancing creating their being

their being dancing their creation


hello – hello – hello


what words does their language

spoken or unspoken include?


messages not yet translated

strange creatures flap their wings

listening to beings between zoological

and anthropological


listening as a composing tool


organic machinery

fluffing the fish


eskimo music played
alien winter planet
breathing the cold air
lungs lunging lung
