Aurally seeing or visually hearing – the possibilities of synaesthetic perception, the duality of sound and colour, are analysed in a radical reduction in the two-minute tone and image piece. Sine waves in four different frequencies, the colour blue in four hues, and precisely indicated time values form the parameters, which are superimposed in phased displacement; their harmonies mutually influence each other, intensifying, weakening, or even disappearing altogether.[...]
A concept involving rational stringency and stringent reduction: yet the assignment of a clearly defined tonal colour remains open.
