Normally, the sound heard after start of the performance is considered Inside of the work, and the sound heard in preparation or/and rehearsals is Outside. The consciousness of this distinction of Inside and Outside determines the performer’s conduct. But at the same time, the difference of sounding could be, strangely but somehow, felt by the audience.

I would like to make the stage the occasion of listening to The Time of the Sound that is flickering between Inside and Outside of the work.
