Helena split is a radiophonic, binaural work, that takes an abstract approach in how it treats the spatiality of aural surroundings.
The piece splits up the stereo picture in two distinct channels, two separate spaces - left and right.
A voice narrative ties the separated spaces together. The binaural, totally realistic, field-recorded
spaces are superimposed with each other and thus create whole new, impossible spaces.
The work (4 min) can be listened to here, please listen with headphones:
