I listened to the translation of a Russian poem that reminded me of a woman I used to love, and I wanted to keep those words with me, so I spent some time memorizing them.
This work is composed by the overlapped recordings of my voice, repeating the same verses many times in order to learn them. I restricted the whole process of learning into 52 seconds, which is the amount of time I need to tell the poem. You can no longer distinguish all the words, yet the evocative feeling is still present under different shapes.
