    Edition: Digital

    The work Corn d'or comprises quick, compressed sounds whose density means they can be listened to en masse. In the slow moments the mass deflates and softens, the sound expands and separates, breaking off in the form of phrases, or isolated sounds, with different properties, directions and levels.
