All throughout the Cold War, East Germany maintained diplomatic relations with North Korea while West Germany did with South Korea. Therefore a number of political and cultural parallels among the DDR and North Korea can be made.
For this piece I prepared my keyboard with audio samples from the DDR and the DPRK, including field recordings from  loudspeaker battles over the Berlin Wall and the demilitarized (DMZ) , radar sounds, morse voice generators and music of propaganda. I performs while resting on my keyboard, the weight of my elbows randomly trigger the samples while I am in a state of total inertia.
