"What is the significance of living here at this address, in this building, said to relate to my existence, to my life, in this time of listening? My goal is to work the elements of perceived reality in order to reveal their potential in sound and music in my daily space. The editing mixes documentary research with an aesthetic approach that is driven by an idea of the musical. In order to preserve the original listening, the dynamic of the recordings, or for that matter the real acoustics of the spaces, no effects were used."-Eric La Casa
