These tracks have been recorded by me in a cold Saturday in Washington DC and precisely on December 13. 2014. These records are part of my long term project Sculptures and a primary part of the exhibition concept. After many sessions listening this material, I've decided to leave the tracks as originally taken. Noise, wind and any other sounds are parts of that reality.
Tracks have been not changed in their sequences order, showing as an initial calm is the introduction for emotional and accalorate speeches.
