A suggestion of forces through their shadows; outlines projecting several possible masses, movements, actions, tensions, things.
Created in the studio by performing and exploring various instrumental-recording setups (cello / cymbal / bass drum with several mics reamped through amps directed at snare drums in turn recorded with close and distant mics), then laying out material on a console and performing mixes recorded as stems; finally working through several stages of contouring, etching, tracing.
