Hoge viooltonen en een zacht trommelgeroffel. Langzaam gaan we dichterbij. Stapje voor stapje. De ruimte blijft onbeweeglijk. We gaan schrikken, de vraag is wanneer.

Het geluid neemt toe, we zoomen in. Het kan ons niet ontgaan dat de vloer met een uitstekende precisie is gelegd. De planken sluiten feilloos op elkaar aan. Maar we moeten blijven opletten, alert zijn. We weten niet voor wat.

Dan staan we stil en stopt het orkest. We horen alleen nog onze ademhaling.

Text: Elske Helmich

Translated text

High violin tones and soft drum rolls. Slowly we edge a little closer. Step by step. The room remains unstirred. We are going to be spooked, the question is when.

The sound increases, we zoom in. It cannot escape us that the floor has been laid with utmost precision. The floorboards join flawlessly. But we have to keep our heads up, stay alert. We do not know for what.

Then we stop and the orchestra ceases. All we hear is our breathing.

Translation: Peter-Jan Vermeij
