Vertical Time is exclusively derived from recordings of conventional string instruments (violin, viola, violoncello, double bass). The title implies an idea of time passing in the form of a downward spiral. The non-linear and shifting, overlapping method of (glissando-driven) recurrence, is aimed at dissolving the perception of linear time, without the use of static or endless repetition. This idea of a vertical time came to my mind as self-observation while surfing the internet. A routine web user tends to do several things at the same time, and thus wants to submerge profoundly into different information sources, archives, forums and communication channels, often in a rapidly jumping manner. this often leads to iteration loops. This desire to deepen different thoughts / activities simultaneously, has a bizarre effect on subjective perception of passing time, and on the perception of focus and distraction. At the end of the day, however, 24 hours have gone by as usual.
