Around you lies the gentle valley, green meadows and the soft sound of cattle bells. Above, huge grey ridges loom through gaps in the dappled trees, majestic and terrifying in their enormity.

Subsurface features sounds recorded from sources of carbonated water as well as found trash that carbonated drinks are packaged in. It is a criticism of litter and trash found throughout our environments as well as an examination of the role of packaged water in a desert environment. All materials used were recycled after recording.
The “theme,” heard with minimal variation at the halfway point, is a gritty series of analog pulses that meanders over the four playback channels. The continuous variations that surround it are generated by analog transformations involving recursion (i.e. repeatedly applied signal multiplication, filtering driven by envelopes derived from the very signal being filtered, and various feedback systems from tape delay to “bucket brigades”). All the sonic materials were developed in the Voltage-Control Studio at the Institute of Sonology, Netherlands, and the form was then refined in a digital sequencer.
"Depiction of Sounds - Pray to Buddah -4th short version"
At the end of the year, I hear the bells on New Year's Eve. In order to wash away all the bad things of the year. And, as next year will be a good year, I wash out the heart. New Year, I will pray to the shrine. To be a good year this year, I sincerely pray. The time has go past the early. A year is a blink.

Based on its namesake poem by Edgar Allan Poe, this piece combines reciting with processed bells' sounds which try to emulate different stages and moods described in the poem.
