The intention for this piece is to create a quantum planetary universe of splintered sounds. This can easily result in just chaotic randomness. Therefore I clot separate short soundclips into groups. In turn, those new groups clot into bigger clusters. This way I gain massive individual sound objects with high granular density. Polyrhythmical structures are enclosed by repeating short granular patterns, like frozen mechanisms. These loops connect the bigger sound objects in time. Some things are too big to control, others too small. In between I compose.

Premiere
