The Tuner?s Monologue Synopsis: If the idea of folding and unfolding depends on the structure and expectations a city arouses or suppresses, what images can be produced by the coexistence of sound and space, the space between lived experience and a simultaneous reflection of it? The Tuner?s Monologue A voiceover in the form of a monologue, in which a tuner of musical instruments describes aspects of the profession, is superimposed to B&W film footage of architectural facades of buildings under construction in the ?new heart? of Rotterdam. Both text and footage have been subjected to an increased degree of abstraction.
