A day off – the sounds of privileged life in a small, cosy flat while a crisis after another exacerbating in the outside world. Very close encounters with gurgling stomachs, diligent small critters, dishwashers, washing machines, moka pots, tea kettles and a hailstorm on the other side of the windows.
Sound piece commissioned by SEMI SILENT in the frame of SONIC FUTURE RESIDENCIES 2022.
