RPM (Revolutions Per Minute)

Revolutions Per Minute, composed of victory speeches from diverse sovereignties during WWII. Through sampling, collaging, and the synthesis of different playback speeds, speeches about rosy futures from diverse sovereignties have been abstracted into musical rhythms and assembled into a new melody resonance, which is engraved as a new vinyl and marks the sonic territory in the space.

The work traces back the context of the history of political propaganda, and refer to cultural semiotics. Through the repeated reproductions and transformations, I question the relation between the content and the outline of the shapes, and when one's prosthetic memories have been created.
