Having purple eyes is a true story, captured through interactions in the legal system. Based on scattered memories of human interactions in courts, police stations, waiting rooms and corridors, and notes collected by Diana Duta during her time working as an interpreter.

Given free hand to choose, pick and experiment, the material was recorded by artists working with voice in various ways: Liberty Baverstock, Paul Haworth and Alice Pamuk. The pre-recorded script, split into sections of various length, is programmed onto a drumpad and triggered at the hit of a drumstick, arranged into different compositions for every performance. Working in a similar manner, Matthieu Levet creates the music for the piece live, in a constant dialogue between word and sound.
