Avsluta – fold.
"fold." is a field recording from the inside of a flock of thousand cranes. It starts with rustling of a single crane and slowly grows into a swooping wave. fold reanimates the ancient tradition of senbazuru, folding a thousand origami cranes, promising to make any wish come true. It explores the sonic potential of paper in interaction with repetitive human gesture and their tangible surroundings. A swelling cloud of perpetual motion, of buried clues and infinity of possibilities waiting to be discovered. A listening environment inviting to be inhabited by curious ears and adventurous minds.
