I imagine sounds that are visible
, constantly transforming into different forms, sizes, and colors, as they travel through the air at different speeds. the timbre of the tape material is based on my personal characterization of the flute: metallic, sensitive, fragile, light, and warm, but at the same time cool. these sounds from the tape are sometimes as small and gentle as grains of sand, and other times, as unyielding as a mass of metal. the transformations of both tape and flute take place as their sounds react to one another. the tape material reacts especially to the air pressure of the flute, as if the air emerging from the instrument physically blows away and breaks the tape sounds into small particles. at the same time, the traveling force of the tape material through the air causes the flute to react back.
