The method which passes from the mail, the letter, to the chat and the videoconference, is always that of research, of the search, with the continuation of wasted time. \"the tongue is loaded\" thus proposes an experiment of loss of time, of influence of time. This is an audio-haptic experiment about the relationships between text, space, time, sound and music inspired by Samuel Beckett\'s \"L\'image\" and many others influences in different fields.

Jacques Derrida. Le toucher, Jean-Luc Nancy.
