"Dictee" is a series of narratives in nine parts with each of the Nine Muses identifying each of the sections...The narratives
trace names, events and histories of existing persons, individual personages in history and other fictitious characters embodied
in nine female voices. Each of the sections are self-contained chapters, each an evocation of the past through speech, through
the research of language that may open avenues to MEMORY, to the elemental process of recollection. Dictee simultaneously
experiments with time; Time which the characters experience...in Korean history, in "mythological" Time. The grammar is applied
in ways to establish a chronology which expands or condenses Time, or make it constant, atonal/eternal." (printed in the broadside).
