Begun on January 1, 2008, and completed at the beginning of August. Made using very thickly layered environmental recordings made in one seemingly 'quiet' room; no instruments were played. Through the layering, emergent melodies and drones reveal themselves. The idea was to explore the sounds heard in a music room that was idle. headphones are recommended but I have also found the piece works well when played in an active house; the quieter parts blend in with the normal environmental sounds at the location so that the louder parts seem to develop from nowhere and take you by surprise.
