At some point, slight anxiety is appearing on your mind. Nothing scary, it is radio interference from a mobile in the headphones of your cassette player that has transformed a familiar rhythm into early techno intro. The frequency range perceived by a human becomes rather narrow to catch immersing signals in the large cities’ air full of dense radio waves.

In Spatial waves, the signals recorded by the radio frequency scanner were transferred to the audible frequency range and used to create a multi-channel sound composition, emitting its sounds from a bunch of separate speakers.
