is a sound installation. It is an immersive instrument. In it, long strings spanning the entire space are excited by rotating pieces of fabric. The rich sounds produced are tuned to produce the room modes, frequencies whose wavelengths correspond to the dimensions of the room. These accentuate the harmonic characteristics and alter their texture.
