Es war ein Klang
(Once Upon a Sound)

Improvised music (coming from the intuition of the musicians themselves) is used to create stories from sound, which the audience is responsible to interpret for themselves.

An experiment in the motivation behind creating improvised sound and the context in which it is heard.
