These acoustic pieces were created in a short-term project (starting on a Monday afternoon and ending with a public presentation on Friday morning of the same week) around the year 2000, addressing the question as to how the quality or the particular qualities of design could be expressed acoustically.

The session was recorded with a non-professional recording device.
