From Robert Henke/Monolake's homepage:


"In early October 2008, the swedish installation artist Fredrik Wretman contacted me, because he wanted to use my Monolake piece Indigo for an installation. I liked the idea, but found it a bit inappropriate to simply play back the same song again and again in a loop. Instead I isolated some elements from the original piece and transformed them into slowly evolving atmospheres to match with the aura of Fredrik's installation, Tap Tim, which radiates a sense of timeless contemplation, one single calm and focused work of art in a large gallery space. 


With my laptop and my pre-prepared atmospheric sounds I came to Ostersund a few days before the opening and created a constantly permutating and endless multichannel soundscape based on some of the sounds of the Indigo piece. During the installation the music is played back from three CD players, each of them containing a slightly different version of the soundscape, each with a different playing time and each fed to speakers located in different parts of the gallery. As a result, things never fully repeat, and the sound is slowly travelling thru the space, filling the room like a perfume. 



The recording here is a stereo mixdown of the initial state of the installation if all three CDs would be started at the same time."
