A stack of 10,000 sheets of paper; on each page the following text is written:
“A tone hidden in a room plays just above your hearing range. It’s there – but it’s beyond you. Children can hear it – and you used to be able to hear it. The time it has taken you to live your life up to this point has rendered you desensitised to this piece – what you are not hearing is the length of your life.
I’ve hidden the speaker in this room, and I won’t tell you where it is. You’re going to have to trust me that what you are not hearing is actually there. The sound is only present in a few meter wide shaft of noise – localised around the speaker. It’s spatially specific and not a blanket that covers the room. You might have thought that you heard the piece – but maybe that was another tone from something else and the actual work is elsewhere.”
