Ursula Bogner - Der Chor der Oktaven

RAF member, or so she said, and music-maker. She breathed cigarette smoke more than she breathed clean air. Had a way with machines, Helene. A fiend for greenhouses. She liked cider more than beer, loved to drink a glass with a newspaper in front of her, so she could have something to punctuate her dissatisfied exclamations of 'huh' and 'wow.' Loved to wrap herself in towels for what seemed like insane lengths of time, and would wear them outside into the garden, to retrieve the mail. Her music consisted of long tape pieces, the components of which were her voice, sped up, slowed down, disintegrated. 10 tapes in 10 years. One of the pieces ended up as the bumper music to a radio show in Austria.
