Cartsen Nicolai’s work for Liverpool will be an extension of his research on the possible bodily effects of vibration. Sampled tones, modem beeps, and telephone pops and clicks are organised into loops to produce minimalist cycles of abstract sound. The result is a manifestation of the invisible energy of electricity: the acoustic trace of an intangible commodity. Nicolai’s drawings – which might be compared to Duchamp’s explorations of the mechanical metaphor – form the notations for the music he has composed.
