Artist notes:

This track is the result of a residency in Katowice at Biuro Dźwięku Katowice during June 2018, the purpose of the residency was to prepare a quadrophonic live performance for the final event, I composed a long piece focused on the repetition of few elements and on the movement of other few through the room via the 4 system speakers. The audience was in the center, immersed in an uncanny but comfortable atmosphere give by a foggy room with a daylight, I wasn't visible, playing behind a curtain. The goal was to invite the audience to listen and focus on the acoustic environment I set up for them in a deep way. I'd like to say thank you to Piotr Ceglarek, Souzan Bajtos, Jan Dybała Jr.

More than ever, it's time to sit down and listen.
