In this composition, the picture of liquid, moving, and fast-dissolving forms became the metaphor for sound spatialization in the electroacoustic space. Each musical gesture is bound to a specific space movement that underlines its character. Out of recorded sequences with a gong, other percussion instruments, trumpet, flute and vocal fragments, these rather distant sound elements develop a common musical discourse. Their very different spectra are reduced occasionally to the loudest harmonic components, retaining just pure pitches and melodies: as a result, their differences disappear.
