Recording:

Note:
In this piece an electrical short circuit initiates a flux of sound. A constant tension exists between the acoustical results of manipulation of electric current and the poetic historical meaning of sounds. The sound flux constantly fluctuates between functioning as an acoustical phenomenon and having a semantical value, allowing us to perceive the mutations of it in a purer sense.
