This reworking of archive recordings explores the concept of the ‘point zéro’/‘blank page’ present during the early years of the Darmstadt Summer Course. Specifically how the attempt to begin again ‘from nothing’, from an erasure of what has just happened, is undermined by itself: rather than opening to a clear and free new beginning this intention puts what comes next under an immense but hidden pressure. The attempts to inscribe new work upon this supposed blank page are captured by signs of rupture, buckling, shadows and resonances. This capture is what I explore here: the fracturing blank page, the pre-existing resonances and lines encircling, emerging, and rupturing from the attempts to make new inscriptions.
