Description:
Program note (English): The music was inspired by the hoop-sculptures of Naom Ben-Jakov. The visual element of rhythmical repetition has been translated into musical echoes. The tape is based on ready-made voice samples that deal with human relations. The voice samples are taken from American talkshows (like the Jerry Springer Show) and from one of the last radio interviews with the legendary jazz singer Billy Holiday. In this interview Billy was asked to recite her favourite song, 'Don't explain': Skip that lipstick, And I know you cheat, And what love endures. Another important voice sample is the word 'hoops' - spoken by a female psychiatrist with a strong French accent (You are jumping all those hoops). The many meanings of the word 'hoop' or 'whoop' refer both to the sculptures of Ben-Jakov and to the voice samples. - JACOB TER VELDHUIS
