Cat Hope

We are now battling between sounds of we craft from wood and wire, and sounds we make with circuits smaller than the eye can see. This piece is one way to try and make them fit together, to bring them together. We keep trying things, here.

Cat's piece SOUNDS like the overpowering and endless concept of space that we have come to understand through the collective imagination of artists across many disciplines. It captures and balances old and modern aural atmospherics in a powerfully haunting and hoping piece of music.
