I could hear the ground crunch beneath my feet like crusted snow or glass or something
       
     
  A single gesture that can loop infinitely. A person lies supine on a bed straddled by another person who repeatedly and slowly beats him over the head with a microphone. The amplifier is hidden behind the pillow so that the blow of the microphone creates a deafening bang followed by a sustained feedback. Periodically, Bach’s Variation 25 from Glenn Gould’s 1955 recording of   The Well-Tempered Clavier   plays softly.
