transFORM or Zuang for 4 Thomas Gerwin

This piece was made entirely of the voice of actor Florian Müller- Mohrungen. 1001 variations of a short text from Zuangzi, the Taoist Book of Wisdom were recorded. The composer then processed this material in the studio in many analog and digital ways. The 4-channel version of the piece was commissioned and broadcast in 2002 by SFB/ ORB radio station in Berlin, Germany. Channels 1–2 came from the radio and channels 3–4 from the internet. Each listener who owned a radio AND a computer with an internet connection could listen to the piece with quadrophonic sound.
