Noise#Giorgiana Violante#Fear’s Heart beat
« Never fight fear head-on. That rot about pulling yourself together, and the harder you pull the worst it gets. Let it in and look at it. What shape is it? What colour? Let it wash through you. Move back and hang on. Pretend it isn’t there. Get trivial.”
(William Burroughs, The Western Lands.)
People use noise to comfort themselves.
People use fear to protect themselves against fear. They make light of it. The internal noise of fear can be ridiculed, cheapened and played with by reducing it to a semi humorous grotesque.
This was my intention in this piece.
