When Darius mentioned, he would like to exchange some physical object for our collaboration, I was amazed! Just a while ago we started collaboration with Tarab exactly like that! Sooo, I asked Tarab (Eamon Sprod) – when he will be finished with it - to post my sound-object from Australia to Darius in Lithuania. He did. And, Darius – trickster! - posted me his sound-object a while after: one red balloon filled with air from his room inside another red balloon with the air from his street! I attached on the membrane of balloon little microphones and recorded sounds within my living habitat through this balloon interface or/and in the meta-presence of the balloons. I recorded inside house, outdoors in the garden, in the close environment and inside my car. Then I used these sequences to create my composition. I do not know what exactly Darius did with my sound sculpture, there is only to listen ...
