With this new release in the “box” series, Ants continues to propose "sound objects" that have to do with sound, even without explicitly containing it in a predetermined form. Starting from the experiences with the World Soundscape Project by R. Murray Shafer and the study of texts by Torsten Hägerstrand and Henri Lefebvre, Albert Mayr processes a potential score, a path / game in the world of sound and relationship with time and space. Albert Mayr’s verbal score is constructed in the form of a series of instructions provided to the potential user. It's a work that affects the ability to concentrate and the analysis of sounds. To do this Mayr offers us the most natural and obvious of the listening spots; the one that most commonly we have available: a window. The instructions contained in the cards of the score (the choice of which can either be preordained or random, full or partial, and that will provide a starting point for further personal processing) are indications, suggestions with the aim of helping in the work of "selection" of sounds, devoting the proper attention, in a sort of training program for improving the quality of our perception, in space and time, of the sound world around us.
The boxset is a set containing 38 graphic cards (the Verbal Scores, both in Italian and English) arranged in graphic form by Giovanni Antognozzi, plus 9 sheets with sample photographs and critical notes by Laura Monaldi and the author himself, still both in Italian and English language. It contains no musical support. Every box is numbered.
