With this performance I was studying what could be the purest, the holiest and the most innocent sound. I wanted to have some new age angle in the design so I decided to work with FM-synthesis instruments – synthetisated sounds that try to mimic a real life. Those cheesy ones, which still somehow have the characteristics of being innocent.

For the pureness, I used a lot of fifth intervals, tuned with Pythagorean tuning system. And as for the holiness of it, I ended up using a lot of organ-like sounds combined with methods like circle of fifths and ever-rising glissandos.
