‘Chercher’ (1974)

‘When I put the microphone into the mouth I have simultaneously five sounds: the air and the liquid in the mouth, the respiration in the nose, the air between each tooth and the respiration in the lungs … In 1974 I put into my stomach a very small microphone and it was a discovery – the body is always like a factory! It never stops – there’s no silence!’

(Chopin, 1992)

‘La Civilisation du Papier’ (1963)
