C.D. - ­A Script for Synthesis 

09.11.2013 & 10.11.2013: C.D. ­A Script for Synthesis is a sound piece, an experimental drama, a model of abstraction recalling Artaud’s Theater of Cruelty as much as Beckett’s minimalist narratives and neo-imagist poetry. It is the climactic third chapter in the trilogy of text-sound pieces Hecker has collaborated with the writer and philosopher Reza Negarestani (Chimerization, documenta 13 and Hinge, Lumiar Cité, Lisbon; both 2012). The suggestive encounter with a pink ice cube is a conceptual point of departure for a scene in which linguistic chimeras of smell/sound descriptions are materialized through synthetic trophies, auditory objects, and theatrical props. Exeunt all human actors, C.D. ­A Script for Synthesis is an experiment in putting synthetic emptiness back into synthetic thought, featuring main vocals by Charlotte Rampling, a perfume created by Frédéric Malle, Editions de Parfums and Carlos Benaïm, IFF, a CAL 64 Column Array Loudspeaker System by Meyer Sound, textiles in collaboration with Kvadrat and a chorus with vocal design by Joan La Barbara and a synthetic paper booklet designed by NORM, Zurich.
C.D. – (A Script for Synthesis) is a Performa Commission. Co-presented by Performa and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; with the support of Sadie Coles HQ, London; Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle; Galerie Neu, Berlin; Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen; IFF; Kvadrat and Meyer Sound.
