"It is no surprise that Robin Rimbaud, aka Scanner, chose to make a one hour sound-piece of Warhol. Though, basing a 60-minute radiopiece for Bayerischer Rundfunk upon boredom, as is the case here, might seem a bit boring. Or as Warhol might have said: Gee, uhm, really up there. Because Warhol really liked boredom. He liked repetitiveness, copies, details. He liked the surface, the new technology. In fact: he would have liked to be a machine himself. Because Scanner takes the sound as Warhol took the soup; creating a universe where the looping everyday becomes interesting in the blurred domesticity most people see as the very essence of plain, repetitive boredom. Touching upon the fact that it does not matter how famous or ordinary you are: A sausage is just a sausage. Or is it? I guess it's up to each individual to choose what to make of it. Warhol and Scanner are, it seems, just showing us the cans / scan. -- Mathilde Schytz.
