Studio is a place where realities may be deployées, spread out, made present, re-presented – with a hyphen – by diverse professionals. It doesn’t mean, either, that their specialty does not count, that it would only be a label. All those people are not just participating into a kind of spontaneous brainstorming session. On the contrary, they do come together with their competencies, expertise, knowledge. But in the studio nobody can 'apply' any fixed knowledge. Instead they engage with their bodies, they negotiate with others, depending on what happens, with the possibility of being surprised, and of commuting roles. So, say, in the music studio I am officially the one who writes the lyrics, but as I am sitting there, listening to the work, playing for the public, or reacting to the music, or blaming the sound. The studio allows changing roles, incarnating, embodying the relationships between different kinds of reality, putting them together. All those 'components' come from outside, brought by the professionals, but to become a song they have to be tested, put into question, mixed, and so on. Technically, this also means all this is not a matter of ideas and disputes only: it heavily relies on material intermediaries, as sketches, drafts, more or less elaborated maquettes - anything that can resist, respond, and provoke new ideas.
