This piece explores the duality of analogue and digital electroacoustic techniques. These elements first appear as disparate and physically separated. As the piece progresses, the disparity dissolves as the two different tec! hnologies become unified in the sonic space. Mirroring the narrative of the diffusion, the individual parts themselves start very sedate and become more active over the course of the piece. The disparity is able to be resolved as at the most basic level analogue technology operates on a digital principle (the discrete iron filings in the magnetic tape), and the digital technology operates with analogue aspects (electricity travels in waves through microchips), though both technologies attempt to defeat the shortcomings of the other system that it is built on. Dualities also appear in the individual parts, as both contain both linear and looped aspects. The material in both parts mirror each other in design and evolution, though contain only elements of their own elements (analogue to analogue and digital to digital).
