Organic and synthetic materials in collision, the layering of divergent acoustic spaces, condensed structures, jumbled sounds and dynamic swells. Basic materials are infinitely transformable, evolving and rearranging through cycles of growth and decay.  Sources include bowed wire, harmonica, cello, dry leaves, glass shards, ceramic rods, paper, hand cymbals, small bells, rocks in a wooden box, metal rods, cardboard tubes, tuned cowbells, mechanical viola, seeds on tin foil, bowed glass, recordings in a resonant stairwell.
