“The blows from outside” by Davide Tidoni
Recorded in Athens at the Borderline Festival 2017 by Theofilos Botonakis.
A microphone is treated with hot wax drops and eventually set on fire.
the mic is exposed
no armor to wear
facing the world
a punch in the chest
each touch is a mark
each flame is a trace
its body a map that accumulates
the sound it makes
a desperate cry
feeling all those blows
until when it dies
