This is a piece, which began with a field recording at Atelier Giorgi, via Belfiore 5H at Turin, Italy, and was completed with some additional recordings afterwards. But the addition was made vertical, layer by layer, not straight putting piece after piece.

Norbert R. Stammberger is practicing the intuitive style of composition and improvisation. Intuitively, he

Often we can very well say: Here was the not-yet, the moment from which the none (non-existing) did show up as a transition to opportunity.
