2 _ Censoratorium is an x-ray image of the censorship inherent in this situation, a structure developing from a concrete, reactive ban to an active and in itself. Taking the reversal of the principle of censorship as the point of departure - the censored passage is made audible instead of repressed - this oratio stages a compostional/composed exhibition fight between music and language: instrumental music is occasionally and, gradually, more frequently interrupted by these sought-after triggerwords and ultimately suppressed by them. Columns of words erect themselves, become enlarged, coalesce into a wall of words enclosing the realm words. The libretto takes shape on its own from the catalog of stimulus words and the noises tapped in realtime. The instrumental music is an empty space; the words are sung fall into it as if plunging directly into an orchestra pit.
