IN ORDER studies a poem composed and read by slam poet MC Jabber. Jabber’s lightning delivery is in itself almost literally super-human, and opens the mind to the extraordinary potential of a text that is profound and deeply sensitive read in a way and at a velocity that hardly allow the listener to discern the actual words spoken. Only the phonetic ghost, which is also a macro-structure, is continuously perceptible, and I have used this residue of phonemes to structure the composition, as space, as location and as movement. The motion of the copper funnels is driven only by the sounds of Jabber’s voice and low frequency tones.
