Places devoted to the night,

Remote from tumult and from noise,

In this short piece, the musicians are separated from each other by a physical barrier, and their only source of contact with each other are TV screens. Like artificial marble, aloe vera and gold, stock background music is an inseparable element of the repetitive, almost identical public spaces so characteristic of late capitalism.
