"PRELUDE 9: I OPEN THE DOOR. NO, NO DOOR. THERE ARE TWO CURTAINS ARRANGED ON A SPACIOUS STAGE, SEEMING TO BE JUST ONE, WHEN NOT BEING THAT CLOSE UP. I OPEN ONE OF THE CURTAINS AND MY FACE FINDS ITSELF HIT BY A DISTANT STAGE LIGHT. IMMEDIATELY I GO BACK AND PUT MY BODY BEHIND THE OTHER CURTAIN. THIS CURTAIN WILL REMAIN. I LIFT ONE FOOT INTO THE LIGHT BEAM. THERE’S AN IMBALANCE OF HEAT DISTRIBUTION IN MY ORGANISM. I DON’T SEE MUCH IN THIS HIGH-CONTRAST SETTING. NOR IS THERE AN AUDIBLE REACTION TO MY FOOT SINGING A LOVE SONG AFTER APPEARING FROZEN FOR QUITE A MOMENT. WHEN TURNING MY HEAD AROUND, I SEE A VOID WHERE I HAD EXPECTED A BACKGROUND. SOME BODY OPENS AND CLOSES THE DOOR."
