“Minefield” (2008) for CD players and four performers
This piece is for CD players and four performers. All sound
parables originate from the same device: its faults or interferences.
The utilized potential of the device allows

Minefield is a recorded digital sound of the de-mining
device, which produces certain frequency sounds when
gold, silver and other precious metals are detected.
