This work was done after Epitaph I by Austrian concrete poet and writer Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003). His late work falls under what he himself called the “System nachschrift” a system that can be broadly characterised as the montage presentation of quotations from documents relating to the planning, execution, and consequences of the Holocaust.
The voice of the piece was done by Austrian actor Dominik Castell with whom I had the opportunity to work with.
