Sound Disposition / Crystal Gardens is a meditation on coincidence and precision, two unresolvable questions that are posed to us when observing crystal shapes in time. It speaks of the tension between the mathematical constant and unexpected inventiveness that might lead to singularity or might also remain eternally quasi-random.

In the sound composition, the precise structure is entwined with randomness. It follows the changeability of crystals that form a voronoi mosaic. The sound is broken, compressed, it crackles and builds up into unpredictable growths. At the same time, it projects the resonance spectrum of the crystals that form a constant soundscape beyond time variables.
