marcello donadello ...and “wherever I lay my hat (that's my home)”, Marvin Gaye used to sing. What happens, then? It stays in your head, or spreads like pollen?
Indeed, rather than creating out of thin air, skipism is giving you the key to decrypt: these sounds were already there, but you weren't able to read them.
“Look!”. “...what?”. “Here: try with these”: you are given a pair of weird glasses, and all the hidden, alien flora & fauna that surround us can no longer remain invisible.

Beauty, with a guided tour.

I do most of my sound work in headphones, and I'm always drawn to small, subtle sounds and try to bring them into the light. I had the thought to make an album where the sound sources feel close around the listener, say, if the listener was sitting inside a small glass dome. Instead of stuffed animals, birds or other curiosities, you'd be surrounded by bright spots of light or dark, dusty corners. Just behind your head, something is giving you a sound picture, while another is suspended right above you. If I succeeded in creating such illusions, everything you hear will be under your hat.
