The project //2009//, curated by Julia Eckhardt, is a succession of sound recordings made over the course of one year by ten artists who each had four weeks to respond to the recording of an unknown predecessor. They received no information other than the recording itself. Each recording is 7 minutes long and is accompanied by a written account. Recordings and reflections are brought together in a book published alongside the CD.

The aim was to investigate how we perceive music, in a more precise way than ‘I liked it’ or ‘it spoke to me’ and whether it is in any way possible to ‘understand’ experimental music. The proposition of the research-part of the project was that mis-understanding could lead to creative interaction, presupposing that there is an active and open listening.
