The piece was developed through an instructional score, designed in collaboration with Céline Amendola. The score explores ways of navigating familiar environments through activities of listening, touching and vocalising. It was activated by the artist and collaborators Adriana Minu, Clarinda Tse and Alica Tserkovnaja at different times in their homes. Recordings made in this process have been edited, merged and digitally transformed into a sonic landscape mingling with the environmental sounds of the exhibition site.
