realization notes

Pots, saucepans, kettles and metal bowls and jugs are mounted on the ceiling over the heads of the visitors. 16 loudspeakers are located within the pots which act as resonators for the sounds. The 8 channel sound textures - made out of various kitchen noises and the sound of a TV cooking show - are splitted into 4 stereo CD tracks which are played simultaneously in an endless loop.
