ZANG TUMB ZANG was inspired by the 1914 Marinetti narrative poem, Zang Tumb Tuuum: Adrianopoli ottobre 1912: Parole in libertà.
ZANG TUMB ZANG was exhibited at the multidisciplinary music and arts festival: Fort Process. The original poem was split into two with sections omitted into silence, leaving the onomatopoeic staccato of Marinetti’s vocalisations in place. Two speakers at each end of a long subterranean brick tunnel played out the audible poem, one speaker after the other in sequence. A chalk line marked the exact centre of the tunnel; a division between.
