“Clones” tells the story of a never-ending winter from the perspective of a narrator and her experience of dreaming in multiple states. In the absence of shifting seasons, dreaming becomes the primary state of transformation.
In four-hour daily cycles, this narrator wakes up, falls asleep, and dreams amidst a pervasive hum that takes possession of her body and summons a familiar visitor. Together, these bodies exist somewhere and elsewhere, gliding through landscapes while nurturing their fading memories into a new figuration.
When recognizable cycles disappear, new patterns appear. Taking place in a moment frozen in time, “Clones” documents the memories of two sources and of a symbiosis becoming parasitical.
“Clones” is a fictional piece written and scored into a sonic narrative by Matilda Tjäder. The work was commissioned and produced by HTSU Cooperative.
