Florian Hecker's Chisenhale Gallery exhibition continues his investigation of sound in relation to the body and space, employing idiosyncratic psychoacoustic propositions in order to examine and disrupt spacial perception. To accompany his exhibition Hecker has produced a new limited edition print directly relating to the 2-channel work Magnitude Estimation, which features a voice reading the loudness values of a given sound. These same utterances are emitted synchronously from an opposing loudspeaker, creating an auditory chimera while doubling the voice, the significaion and the measurement of what one hears. In a style referencing representational formats of classical conceptual art, Hecker's hand-printed edition depicts the first three loudness values of the piece in text.
