Composition as Dialogue

Snipped from elsewhere, composed here.

Analogies of Dialogue

Perhaps by analogy one could claim that the modular elements of a film are assembled in a such a manner as to constitute a performance of dialgoue. Parts work with or against other parts to form a “dialogue”. It is a manner of speaking. It is worth testing how far the analogy of parts working with parts to form a dialogue can be applied. In music, in a painting, in a verbal artefact such as a poem? Composition, a being together in the same space, can become dialogue, a passing through the same space.

x responds to y

Indeed the coming together to occupy the same space for a matter of time can be conceived as a dialogue. To make a composition is to engage in dialogue.

About placing, about place…

And so for day 607
