Description (in English): 

Generation Loss (after Alvin Lucier) is a response to the work by Alvin Lucier from 1969 called: I am sitting in a room. The work features a drone sound over heavily compressed images alternating between the visual poetry read out loud by a bit-crushed vocal. The 4 minute video ends with a photoshopped image of a man in a field featuring guns, a mirror and the phrase «Alvin standingo utside (stick to your guns)»

The work creates a digital space where the literary dimension is to find the signal in the noise. Human reception of sound interprets its meaning, how it reflects on the human condition, even in sound that follows the strict ordering of physical rules of decay.
