Featuring the musical compositional techniques of phase, repetition and pulse, with sounds of New York recorded from a 16th floor hotel window, this sonic poem by Tom Kazas and Josephine Scicluna is a plea for the intimately spoken word.  As cockatoos rise in the white siren sky, two lovers confront love and time in a halting conversation inside a placeless shelter.
