PROPAGANDA
Any type of propaganda works through simple but powerful weapon: repetition.

Repetition not only helps to remember things - purpose of repetition is to control through subconciousness and in that way, to manipulate.
Propaganda works exactly the same way: hearing and seeing the same things over and over makes us believe in what we hear or see, no matter if something is true or not.

Beside that, average life is built on permanent repetition: earth is moving, sun is shining, hearts are beating...that's our nature.

PROPAGANDA - sound installation
What you hear is abstracted interpretation of mentioned statements: you hear couple of pulses in speed of average heartbeat, that are from time to time  time stretched and pitched up or down.

means:

Imagine you are standing in front of couple of TV sets, each one broadcast news from different channels at the same time (pulses). You will notice that the news are mostly the same, with the same content, even with same sentences (repetition). Those minor differences are abstracted through time and pitch phasing between pulses that you can hear…

Duration of the piece (3 minutes) reflects duration of an average pop song (verse/chorus/verse/chorus – repetition).

Which means, everything is always quite the same.

With hope that you get the analogy…
