Excerpt from the booklet:
To cast aside a certain way of the world, no doubt. (...)
To listen to the noises of everyday life with their special flavour. (...)
To cast aside the images of yesteryear, order and command: to leave behind all logic, all expectation. (...) To move forwards a true opening up - from body to body, substance to substance, the closest possible, in the most intimate crannies of its verbal form, towards an awakening, tension and awakening, to pit the world against the world, to cast aside its more cowardly aspect.
And for this, so as to achieve this state against the darker side of the world: embrace with fervour the voices that call in appeal, that intermingle in their plea: embrace the single voice, tautly drawn out a tone above the others, that dares to speak of refusal and revelation: to cast aside, by a voice calling itself to life with an unexpected violence, an embodied voice, a voice in a body that surges forward to place it in space and time - and the music.
To cast aside the distance of separation - this is what the very substance of the voice would claim from the world it rejected to bring it to the world it desired. (...)
