Concerned with continuity and dimension, the actual sound sources have a secondary relevance, thus simply featuring a rusty red distorted electric guitar wall of sound. As we advance in time, the pieces begin to include a more complex, difficult aspect pointing at the progression –from construction to destruction- proposed in the visual work the sound pieces accompanied.
