Sound clip

This CD relates to the trilogy Flown Over by an Old King (1989), Talking to a Dead Queen (1996) and Pluralis Majestatis (1999) - in the way the missing leg relates to a three legged dog. The sound material was entirely recorded on the toilet. Reworked and adapted for the sound installation Avträde in conjunction with the group show Transformation at Karlsborg Castle, Sweden, during the summer of 2000. A certain room was chosen at the castle for this purpose and was later discovered to be the toilet for badgers in the area - a confirmation of the choice! Total respect was paid to the badgers.
