    In 2002, the Scandinavian artist Leif Inge stretched out the recording of a Beethoven symphony to last 24 hours without altering the timbre of the work: i.e., with no pitch distortion.

    Program

    Inge set out to refocus a universal work from an impossible perspective, altering that which made is essentially recognisable: its tempo. It was a way of making a classic his own through a contemporary optic that compels us to perceive it from its materiality, distancing it from its timbric nature, as if it were a sound object without meter, almost outside time. The result confuses, impairs the application of our process of listening and constantly reminds us, in a strange way, of Beethoven’s influence on time.

    24-hour streaming sound installation and in Sala 3, during Beethoven’s Chamber Music marathon at L’Auditori.
