Moving between "object stations" during their performance, Japanese improviser and sound artist Ryoko Akama (Lappetites) and Quebecois sound artist Anne-F Jacques create a flurry of minimal activity, intensely detailed and unidentifiable yet compatible sound using minimal electronics, activated objects, and Jacques' "contraptions and erratic devices".
