Performed by Tacit Group Dec. 22. 2013 @MMCA(National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art), Seoul
“LOSS” does not have performers. There only exists the system (universe) made by Tacit Group, and 6 performers, at the stance of gods, create 6 sounds which are combination of many genes and come down from the stage. Created sounds live by given rules. Basically, they consume food, meet the other sex, marry, and give birth to new sounds. And as time goes by, they grow old and become extinct in the end. Sounds with fast moving style genes consume much food, grow larger, meet the other sex more frequently, and leave many offspring. When these big sounds and their offspring dominate the system (universe), other remaining sounds are relatively deprived of their opportunities and become extinct quietly after wandering the system around. Maybe the system might remain in monotonous peace along with many sounds.
In the world of LOSS, music is not to be played or performed, but it develops from the birth, growth, breeding, and extinction of sounds. Indeed, LOSS is one world in a very practical meaning, not only in figurative sense, and the system made by Tacit Group using ideas from Genetics works as the natural law to make sure that the world is in order. Performers create impact through genetic commands, or give rise to random factors. No one could predict how sounds live in what kind of world, but only can observe.
