2005 version of Macbeth Morse. In this work lines from Shakespeare’s Macbeth are translated into Morse code and broadcasted on SW radio.
The work addresses Language as a hybrid system by translating one of its richest creations into the most elemental rendition, while retaining its melodramatic tone. Since the first version the piece has been expanded to include more passages and exhibited / broadcast in several venues.
In this version the following passage is translated into Morse code:
She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
