Discover all that in you trembles.
Scoff at all that slips away.
Dive in, knowing failure is certain.
Awake to yourself less cold.
Discover all that trembles in you.
Ridicule all that eludes you.
Leap, knowing you’ll fail.
Come alive to yourself less cold.
I have attempted to produce two ways of playing sonic elements (striking and rubbing) and of disseminating them (trajectories in the width and the depth of the stereophonic field), associating each with a specific type of trajectory and establishing their breaking points and harmonic angles through modulation.
