Bartleby speaks to Kaufmann was an audio installation in collaboration with
the artist Uli Schuster during the project Belagerung Bartleby at the Hebbel
Theater Berlin
. We live recorded a reading from the book which we then played
back into the theatre space via speakers and re-recorded them
with a second computer. This was repeated 25 times and with the oscillation
of the architectural space transformed spoken words into an auditory atmosphere.
For a night the theatre by Oskar Kaufmann became an instrument.
The recordings of Bartleby speaks to Kaufmann were documented as follows:
