Vinko Globokar - Discours II

Duration: 14'

Five trombonists explain that there are numerous points in common between the act of speaking and that of playing. There is an analogy in the manner of articulating vocal and instrumental sounds, as well as a resemblance between the timbres of vowels and consonants and those of sounds and of noises. We do no comprehend the ‘meta-language’ used by the quitet, but we sense that the five acolytes explain, interrogate, give orders, argue.
