From the liner notes: "Wired - its the eleventh hour for all of us, were looking for the way in an infinite space, our means of communication is non-verbal, the sounds lead us to one another: communications, tensions, confrontations, agreements- everything is lived out in the sound itself. There is no past and no future, only Now, and so breathless, we face up to each new sound...Who are we ? ...Who am I? After the recording I drive with Michael Ranta to the K_ɬ_ln-Wahn airport. That evening he is in Oska. Form A central sound elevates into the axis of the work, a central note B, that perpetually blends ino the musical occurrences, actually pervading the whole piece as a dominant, producing proportions, articulating, climaxes, and pauses. The tonic-like resolution after two hours twenty minutes leads to the total collapse of the piece."
