her moon is a captured object II
her moon is a captured object is a composition circling a spoken text as it performs an “orbital translation” from English to Greek and back to English in two stages. No simple return to the start: in circling, the text comes back changed – co-authored with its translators (Eirini Amanatidou and Gigi Argyropoulou), over-dubbed by their voices. Considering scales of relation, frequencies and energies of/in/between cities and the people connected to them, the text speaks a series of night thoughts about communicating across distance and difference, about movement and relation, about star-like rocks and language in flight.
For the her moon is a captured object II radio mix, the composition turns again in orbit, with a translation by Angeliki Tzortzakaki cut to vinyl by Jem Finer. Two records playing the two Greek translations with interconnected compositions are mixed live by Yorgos Samantas.
