Jelinek is a sonic montage that uses a sentence from Elfriede Jelinek’s nobel prize interview as the primary material, where she talks about how she practiced ‘a kind of musical language process in which the sound of the words […] has to expose their true meaning against their will.‘ The line is  narrated with layers of sound panning between the two ears intermixed with piano notes played by me and slowed down to the extent of abstraction. The words are fragmented through repetition and the piano notes are used to generate the musical effect of the words, so that they expose their true meaning against their will. The sound of the piano also has a personal relevance as her novel– ‘The Piano Teacher‘ was my introduction to her writings, a naive reasoning to play out the effects of the words.
