Memories of a Pigeon Shooter



An elderly man tells about his former career as amateur pigeon shooter. After telling about his prizes and victories, the meaning of his stories slowly comes to surface: the desire to remain somehow attached to his life memories and not be forgotten.

Playback Instructions:
- You don’t have to concentrate on every word that the shooter says. Feel free to walk around while he’s talking.
- If the monologue exceeds your personal physical tolerance, leave the room where the recording is playing so that the shooter would suddenly find himself speaking alone with nobody listening to him (he would then realize that he has been talking for too long).
- If you like it, you can play the piece in loop, like an extended mantra. The shooter would be happy to have somebody listening to him over and over again.
