The piece is based on recordings made inside several of the rooms of the Stralau 68 building, a former venue for experimental music in Berlin, now empty.
The sound of the trains passing periodicaly on the bridge nearby is very loud and participates strongly to the sonic identity of the building. These sounds and others from the surroundings are resonating inside the building, 'coloured' by the specific acoustics of each room.
In that sense, this composition re-presents space rather as fluctuating matter than as stable geometric volume, and documents at the same time the recording process which is responsible for this transformation.
Additional onsite found sounds have been included in this composition.
