Through a floating camera motion, the film invites us to enter a world with its own logic, passing through sensitive membranes, liquefied borders and openings between inner and outer spaces. Here we attend a reading circle or vocal performance in memory of the counter tenor and queer icon Klaus Nomi, one of the first public figures to die within the AIDS pandemic. Daydream-like, as if to save them from oblivion, the film delves into the guts of fantastical, queer body imaginations - with spit, panting, oral sounds, singing, and vulva-like paper flower arrangements, whereby anatomical representations are reinterpreted.
"In THE HEARING TROMBONE rigid boundaries — physical, medial, verbal, and mental — dissolve and enter into new alliances. The audiovisual duet generates no less than a new kind of language and, subsequently, new kinds of communication, perception, and reality." (Tasja Langenbach)
