“问题在于语词无处不在,我们则越来越擅于用它们掩盖事实。声音也有同样的用途,能够在混沌中触发温情。但我们都应该时常触发一些严苛、清晰、强烈、直接的东西,释放愤怒,直面生存之本真。噪音可以被看作进入事物背面的工具,它是一种治疗手段,令我们在面对生命中不那么美好的一面时不至于丧失信心。把它视作某种特殊能量的源头,它会让你看清世界、逆流而上。”
(“作为语言的噪音”——海尔默·谢弗)

2003年11月,奥地利声音艺术家海尔默·谢弗来到北京,参加“北京声纳”音乐节。很多观众是第一次听噪音,但他赢得了长时间的热烈掌声。2007年4月,他在家中自缢身亡,此前约定的出版和演出计划终未实现。此唱片由谢弗生前好友卡可夫斯基提供。特此出版,以资纪念。

“So the point is that so much words existing, and we get better and better to use them for hiding the truth. You can use sound in the same way, stimulating some nice and warm feeling in middle of chaos, but from time to time we all should stimulate strictness, clearness, intensity, directness, set free some anger to bring up the basic truth of our present. Noise can be seen as the chance to go into the back of things, as a therapy which is able to confront ourselves with others lesser good looking sides of life without getting frustrated by this. See it as a source of very special energies, it gives power to see more clear and swim against.”
(Noise As A Language – Helmut Schäfer)
