The CHARCOAL CIRCLES project by Franziska Windisch explores the relationships between decomposition, sound and movement, object and reproduction.
The record is a compilation of graphic and sonic elements: a recorded sound lecture; the notes from this lecture, including drawings and writings made during the performance; a recording of circular drawing movements using a piece of coal as contact microphone; a silk screen reproduction of this circular drawing printed with coal pigments.
