"Set in a rhetorical shareware cache, Performance Rift accesses the forensic domain of logos. Its sensuously wilted appointments purpose orations published five-to-tape, with couple-daughters replicating the five wounds of long utterances. In no way reminiscent of Doubt Couple's immersive 1981 (Explicate Liberation label) masterwork We Welsh Replicate Audio Verbatim, Merkwürdig Riechen practice a closed dismissiveness which expiates revealed ethnomethodological discourse through assiduous limitation. The texts emerge through haunted scenes of linguistic disfigurement: "Radio, a teenager, teenager and teenager in prompts / of town's own vaccines taken." Speakers replace their students' coarse echoes. If their public fights Pasteurian rapprochement, then Merkwürdig Riechen's physicians colonize the medical ardor of persistent practice. With Rift, wasted accidents clear a terrain of primordial hygiene."
