We pass away against the background of eternity. In waiting we follow the timeless. In the timelessness comes the silence. Now the ecstasy shows itself in the things … untouched, fresh ground … remember Courbet …

Three stones, from the cemetery wall adjacent to the STWST, are gold-plated. The stones float in black milk - an oxymoron that speaks to ontological paradox.
The black milk is poured into a low basin in the shape of a Pascal's triangle. Acoustically, the order is indicated with thunder, which temporally follows the Fibonacci series as reverb.

Source sound: “Thunder” sample as impact and pad sound.
Sound variation: Source sound spreads in the room (reverb plug-in), with the room response serving as the new source sound; this is in turn sent to the new room (room response of the room response of the room response).
Composition: The compositional context follows the Fibonacci series.
1: Silence between the impacts (thunder): 1 sec., 1 sec., 2 sec., 3 sec., 5 sec., …. 233 seconds.
2: Duration of the sound variations: 1 min., 1 min., 2 min., 3 min., 5 minutes.
3: Modulation by effect plug-ins (Haas effect, saturation) follows a repeating 1-1-2-3-5 rhythm.

Pamela Neuwirth, works in radio, archive and art contexts, lives in Linz.
