!An example of what I call IAD’s (improvised audio devices) an improvised sound making sculpture. Here a minimalistic form of music. A clap once every sixteenth step of a forty beats per minute sequence. Which I, without deeper study, claim is one of, if not the, earliest forms of music. An auditory repetition, possible for life forms voice boxes.”
