This installation examines the ways music can be presented and how it enters our lives. The piece consists of 6 intersecting audio loops and speakers each placed inside a different draw in pieces of furniture. Audience members can acoustically effect the sound of the piece by pulling draws in and out to create different sounding combinations and resonances ensuring that the piece is never heard the same way twice.
