Literally, ‘Horizon in the Ear’. A title intended to gently direct attention towards the possibility of a soundscape in which the organism, listening and/or embodied in the sounding materials of the work, is positioned in labile relationship to a horizon. ‘There would appear to be a landscape whenever the mind is transported from one sensible matter to another, but retains the sensorial organisation of the first, or at least a memory of it. The earth seen from the moon for a terrestrial; the city for a farmer. ESTRANGEMENT would appear to be a necessary precondition for landscape’. (Jean Francois Lyotard, The Inhuman: Reflections on Time. Trans. Geoffrey Bennington and Rachel Bowlby. Polity Press: Cambridge, 1991, p.183). Horizont im Ohr was composed in the Electroacoustic Music Studios of the University of Birmingham, and is dedicated to BEAST.
