The words and music of this work are all mirrored. First, each letter of the Latin palindrome “IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE ET CONSUMIMUR IGNI” (we enter the circle at night and are consumed by fire) was assigned a pitch and value, which was then played on a synthesizer and recorded. Each bottle contains the mirrored musical scores, but the tape of the bottle on the left is normal, with the tape of the bottle on the right containing a recording of the first tape played backwards. This palindrome was presented for Fluxus Balance from Gianni Sassi of Italy. (Text by SHIOMI Mieko)
