For sounds to properly meld, one must form a binding marriage between them. But can a perfect collage of sonic colors and mechanical rhythms exist? The arrangement of invisible materials impregnates our lives with an impalpable and electric ambiance; this is what our stereophonic hearing faculties procure when the hearing chemistry whispers “yes” to us. Open wide the floodgates of emotionally charged stratospheric ether… we may, perhaps, take cognizance of the images that no-one has felt, touched or perceived before.
