This works suggests a subtle shift in practice: from fixed to live, from predetermination to intervention. This evolution is slow and cautious, reflected in the treatment of the sound material. Changes in texture and intensity are explored slowly over the duration, blending minimal environments and hinting at the patient listening process involved in field recording.
