A journey to the Chinese Qinghai province (Tibetan culture region of Amdo) was 
commissioned by the Goethe-Institut China. Its purpose was to experience the province and to 
produce art works to be presented at The Third Guangzhou Triennial, subtitled «Farewell to
Post-Colonialism» in the same year. The sound installation Unit and a series of photographs
called Cutting Qinghai resulted from this journey, during which I took photographs and made 
audio recordings. The installation was presented from September 6, 2008 to November 18, 
2008.
 
Unit consists of five pairs of floor-mounted frame drums and hanging loud speakers. The frame 
drums resonate, depending on the sound pressure level from the speakers, which hover a few 
centimeters above them. There are four sound elements (stones, crickets, cymbals and drums 
used in the 5-channel audio composition for this set-up, which were auto-selected and 
projected onto the frame drums according to an aleatoric script on a multi-channel DVD.)
 
50 copies of this release come with a (6.75" x 6.75") 40 page book entitled Cutting Qinghai. 
The regular edition of the CD is limited to 250 copies.
 
CD packaging design by Ana Carvalho.
Book design by Marc Behrens in collaboration with Ana Carvalho.
