The work focuses on station loudspeakers that play bird songs with their metallic sound. In Tokyo, bird songs are played over loudspeakers because songbirds have disappeared from the metropolitan region. The urge to master nature is here strikingly turned into a longing for the natural, which can hardly be satisfied by the technical substitute. This work was conceived for the Japanese garden in the courtyard of the Giessen Congress Centre.
