tube radio that still works. Starting the clock introduced a steady counter of time,

of sound art, experimental music and broadcasting. At the core of his practice lies a

Title: News list [dream and reality]

announcements, as well as making visible/audible the evident anthropocentrism of
some of the news. This sound version of the work was presented for the first time in
