“The page is a time and sound field, in which the space – and what fills it – suggests possibilities to the performer(…)The piece has a very rich iconography – drawing not only on ‘comics’ but on the film and TV derivatives of them. The soundtracks to earlier film and TV adaptations, and many of these are ‘generic’ (horror-movies, gangster-movies, sci-fi and cult/underground material), are also potent and suggestive sources(…)there is a sense of change, and of time passing, but not to any particular purpose. No peripeteia and no closure.” Michael Finnissy
