Thorax Glissando (2023), by Nico Parlevliet

Thorax Glissando is based partly on an audio recording of a past work (Glissando Arioso-2012) and partly on an image-recording of the present moment.
Actually, the current image is what prompted me to search my sound archive for audio that would enhance that image.

After much thought, I decided to use the CT scans, which were made to monitor the cancer in my body, as images. With this, I try to bend the drama in such a way that you get the idea that anything that depicts a process can contain beauty.
