Three stones, from the cemetery wall are gold-plated. The stones float in black milk – an oxymoron that speaks to ontological paradox.

Source sound: “Thunder” sample as impact and pad sound.
Composition: The compositional context follows the Fibonacci series.
1: Silence between the impacts (thunder): 1 sec., 1 sec., 2 sec., 3 sec., 5 sec., …. 233 seconds.
2: Duration of the sound variations: 1 min., 1 min., 2 min., 3 min., 5 minutes.
3: Modulation by effect (Haas effect, saturation) follows a repeating 1-1-2-3-5 rhythm.
