ate feat. ed d.: obey god is a radio play based on a single sentence and it’s evanescent character - brought to life with the help of soundtracks of video tutorials, religious movies, talkshows, an interview and a singing text-to-speech system. a mnemonic originally intended for nothing but the memorization of the guitar tuning gets zoomed in on until the original intention of the sentence slowly fades and new narratives develop. thereby questions of identity get raised and subsequently lead to a thorough retuning of the understanding of that six-word sentence.
