Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything.
“Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything” was composed as a sound installation/soundtrack to David Sylvian’s abandon/hope photography exhibition as part of the Setouchi Triennale 2013 in Uno, Japan.
The sound installation is devided into two sections – a composition by Taylor Deupree, titled Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything, which can be listened to on a playbutton (fully customizable mp3 player in a wearable button) and the reading of various quotations by several famous philosophers which can be heard from the speakers of the audio automobile kiosk. The playbutton was distributed to the audience from the kiosk and features the photograph “Paradise” by Nobuyoshi Araki as the cover-art for the button.
“Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything” is music both without time and existing at multiple points in time. It is about ghosts and futures and the quiet overpowering of nature over man.
