Peter Ablinger claims that sounds are not sounds. They are here to distract the intellect and to soothe the senses. Nor is hearing even ‘hearing’: hearing is that which creates me. The composer is a skeptic who understands the cultural rules and (destructive) habits enforced by tradition. So let us play further and say: sounds are here to hear, but not to be heard. That’s something else. And that hearing is here to be ceased.
