Elferiae is about the limits of silence and noise, experimenting with human perception of sound and its appearing in time. The title is a unique name creation referring to Elvish etherealness and subtlety perceived at the border of human sensation. The sound is like a delicate air movement, drifting and shimmering unexpectedly in a space. Sometimes rising, but impossible to be caught due to its permanent unpredictable movement, blurred and trembling, never stable enough to be looked at closely.
