[OST] (Original Soundtrack) is the second piece of the “Flat Time Trilogy”, a series of three works for solo player with VR Glasses and video. From different perspectives, they constitute a question on how our spatiotemporal perception overrides all the dichotomies between the physical and the virtual, constructing a single playing field.


Within the entire trilogy, the individual and his/her present coordinates (temporality, geolocation, identity) form the core of the situation. Progressively, and through the construction of a massive network of simultaneities and references, memory is neutralized and converted into a pure object.


[OST] is the result of the collaboration with the Spanish artist Belenish Moreno-Gil. The piece stages an individual who is characterized by nudity, embodying the impacts of a continuously reacting environment. Practically at the same the words are articulated, they seem to be deprived of any validity; they lose their capacity to create effective conceptual frames. The liquid property of the entirety converts frame seeking into a chimera, a consequence of a process in which the individual progressively empties himself.  


The video projection of this piece is personalized by the performer via the recording of several fragments, which are treated and indexed into the final project. They fix the identity and the here-and-now of every performance. Together with the score, some instructions and video examples are provided to be followed during the recording process, which is assisted by BELOS Editions.
