„Hope-carriers“ are small beings of lower duration. They appear and disappear. They follow each other. Sometimes they appear in clouds, dispersed in a landscape. They are similar to each other, perhaps. They create gestures, rhythms, clouds that are stratified and fragmented. They form an associative field. Practically, they are results of contingent, structural operations on sound recordings and the selection of specific constellations. They meet in two levels of production, the machinery of creation and the machine of selection. Two machines, with their own contingencies, but their own determination of the music.
