RAW 008

“Each touch is a mark” 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
