This is a binaural composition intended to be heard over headphones.

Wearing binaural microphones, I lay or crouched in the small room underneath by stairs and moved amongst various objects chosen for the variety and range of sounds they could make. By being crouched in amongst the sound sources, I could generate sounds using movements of my hands, arms and legs. The textures and gestures I would otherwise have assembled in the edit were instead being generated by the way in which movements of the arms or body disturbed a wide variety of sound sources at once in different ways.
