Work Overview

The material is made up of small elements, mostly sounds articulated with short percussive attacks, that seem to be cut off before they are able to resonate and decay. The small elements within the material are like fragments randomly detached from a larger body as a result of turbulence or boiling - as if the work was made up of remnants that were spat out by the substance they came from.
