Track Info

Seventy Seconds is Harold Schellinx’s sound diary for the year 2011, a prime year. Schellinx recorded 10 seconds of sound each day of the year at various times of day. The ensuing avalanche of sounds, extracted from Schellinx’s private soundscape, mirrors the relentless passing of time. The sounds captured are often highly personal, but due to their briefness, remain abstract. Seventy Seconds follows and documents the lines of (unfinished) drama and euphoria, hopes and fears, as they continue to unfold. In that sense, Seventy Seconds truly is a diary. It also is simply a work made out of sound, the “intangible and uncanny ghost that always travels half a mile ahead of its own shape" (William Faulkner, Light in August, 1932). The weekly Seventy Seconds are published every Sunday on the dutch webdaily Hard//Hoofd, together with a corresponding photograph shot at a specific time by photographer Pieter van Wynsberge, and a short text in Dutch.
