Linda O'Keeffe:
I wanted to share sounds that explored the hot and cold nature of landscapes, a number of the sounds mixed were based on recordings of spaces fundamentally shaped by their extreme weather from the cold landscape of Iceland with it's hot interior geology, and the Mediterranean landscape of Spain, with it's parched yet abundant ecosystem.
The work progressed from these beginnings to exploring hot and cold natures, hot and cold feelings, metaphors of life and death, family and isolation. Hot and Cold became an anagram of different emotive and societal similes.

Slavek Kwi:
First thoughts ... HOT COLD ... hot becomes cold ... cold becomes hot ... feeling ... feelings. I am wondering how we can distinguish in the realms of sound in between the two. Is it very personal feeling linked to this particular situation, ... a reference to something associated?

... and again, re-wording_unfolding: CHOOLTD ... scrambled. Actually, I have absolutely no idea how to differentiate clearly in between HOT and COLD within sounds. However, I am happy to explore it - to investigate my relationship to anything "it" might ignite within my being. However, during the process I did come to momentary conclusion: if the sounds (including any association with it - either abstract or not) evokes in me feelings of "love" (or similar), I sense it as "hot / warm". The rest seems "cold".
