Girogio Sadotti, Now, 2007


Repeating a word ultimately renders it meaningless and provokes a self-consciousness that can be by turns crushing or liberating. Sadotti often works with the ephemeral medium of sound to explore ideas and map out time and space in new ways. Now stitches together more than 300 samples taken from vinyl recordings of popular music from the past five decades. The fragments of this 'history of popular music in 2 minutes 32 seconds' are collaged together in a random order.
