sound sources: 
field recordings made in nature reserves, national parks, non-human habitat. mostly insects, frogs and avians, some mammals, mostly tropical or desert climates. all but 2 recordings are slowed down/time-stretched 60 - 98 %, some are reversed. no electronic sound sources used.

slowed down field recordings play with time-space dimensions. related to the size of most of the creatures recorded, this game arises: ‘how would i hear/perceive the world if i were an insect (amphibian, avian etc)?’. time-space plays with relations and perceptions of size, speed, frequency, light, sound etc. imagine being an ant in a forest. or a beetle in a desert. or a fish in the ocean. or you in relation to the universe. and how that sounds. these are starting points. just changing dimensions, suggesting different possible parameters.

perception changes through immersion - being part of something.

distractions and ruptures are to be expected.

ritual protest music, to curse homo sapiens out of its infancy.
