performance
it's not constant

This performance piece uses a sample from a drum and base sampler record. The word "constant" is uttered in forwards motion, yet when played backwards the words "It's not" can be heard. This seemed relevant to my previous investigations and experimentations with the changing same. Each time the record was moved back and forth it would not play the sound byte at exactly the same speed and pitch. This process seemed to compliment the words uttered because the tempo and pitch of the lyric could never be repeated in the same way more than once. The process was carried out by two performers antagonistically moving the record in opposing directions, an action that seemed to be in keeping with the sentiment of the sound byte, where in carrying out the process, both performers could be perceived to be visually and rhythmically in confrontation with each other, arguing the point that "It's not constant".
