"ROW goes back to a collecting of field recordings that Hirsch took for Oerol, an annual theatre festival taking place on the West Frisian island of Terschelling / NL. The recording was taken aboard the ARAD, a lifeboat of the Dutch rowing team Roeiteam Terschelling Recreatie during a training exercise on 25 April 2011. The course stretched from the harbour of West-Terschelling out into the Wadden Sea and back again. The focus is on the coxswain's commands which resemble a funk singer's ones and which make the team become one body working their way through the waters. Throughout the last years, different versions of ROW have been featured and broadcasted, among others during the Marrekech Biennale as part of a sonic ambulation project in taxis by Saout Radio / 2014, MO Lautsprecher, a sound art program of Museum Ostwall in Dortmund / 2014, Radiophrenia, Glasgow / 2015, or as part of a golden record produced by Aphids, Australia / 2015, making reference to the Golden Voyager Record by putting together extracts of international sound art in order to shoot them into outer space."
