The artist book by Armin Lorenz Gerold features the story 'Manuel or A Hint of Evil' in text form as well as an audio play version of the work, alongside texts by Alejandro Alonso Díaz and Anna Barfuss, an interview between Gerold and composer Lori. E. Allen, and a foreword by Shahin Zarinbal.0'Manuel or A Hint of Evil' unfolds from the perspective of an unnamed observer whose thoughts coalesce into an inner monologue as he makes regular visits to the Olympic swimming pool in West Berlin, in the summer of 2020. At the pools, every now and then, he sees Manuel, a young man who, in the mind of the observer, becomes an animate object of an affectionate study of the possibility of encounter ? and the abyss it presents.0In his experimental essay, Alejandro Alonso Díaz listens in on architectures of desire through allegories of norse mythology and examines the entanglements between sound, bodies and perception to note that ?"a sonic body precedes perception: the listening process is only an encounter."0The essay Swim Sounds by Anna Barfuss opens an arc from the sounds and voices that, amplified by the echo of the swimming hall, refer to concrete bodies moving in lanes to cultural-historical reflections on artistic and poetic thinking that has emerged from a proximity to water.0In Closer to intuition Gerold and composer Lori E. Allen discuss in depth queer narratives in relation to sound, as ?"an accumulated series of fleeting moments," speaking from both their personal, physical and emotional experiences.
