Created for Sound Art Lab in Struer during 3 weeks spent on the west coast of Denmark, this small piece considers the overlap of maps and field recording compositions in their subjectivity and fragility. While listening to an ambient track created from field recordings made along the coast and in the harbor, the listener can furnish a sculpted sea floor with stones and shells found in the same locations. This is accompanied by three works on paper created using old maps of Struer's coastline, encouraging a connection of tactile, visual, and auditory records.
