Spatial sound composition using lawn mowers and an edger as instruments, graphic score, conductor
The sounds of lawn mowing have become an essential component of anthrophony. It indicates stable and secure living conditions, men's desire to control nature.
Historically, lawn has been a symbol of power and wealth as it required substantial upkeep and unused land. Today, it still indicates wealth, but is mainly maintaned by the owners themselves. This puts us in a schizophrenic situation where we strive to be priviledged by taking the role of the servants.
