First collaborative project between Pierre Gerard (Belgium) and Andy Graydon (Germany/USA). Invited by winds measure to produce a work for cassette tape, the two artists focused on the the particular materiality of this sound technology, once so common and now so rare. Tape's manipulation of a magnetic field evoked other sorts of sensitive magnetic systems, from the intuitive navigation of migratory birds to the organization of the earth's polarity. Starting from this idea of polarity and homeward migration, each artist sent the other a field recording from his home environment for the other to process and compose with: Andy sent a recording of bamboo in the forests outside his childhood home on Maui, Hawaii. Pierre recorded "a wooden table located outside a house in the French village Espère. The table is directed towards the horizon which becomes bluish..." The resulting (trans)migration of sounds and form became this release.
