I used the whole piece (Grass and Nettles and Briars) and also two throat-like-sounds provided by Rachel, but also a few particles of sounds given by girls from the Dublin based Outlandish Theatre (who I was working with on a project simultaneously so it somehow seeped in here). I then began adding some of my own sounds as basic material and the following sound journey became a transformative expansion evolving into the composition ANSVERIS. Composed and intercepted 8th - 9th of July 2015, Meath. For Rachel, John, Maud, Bernie ... and you.
