multiple music tracks of various lengths
     play simlutaneously, and
     loop perpetually
when the tracks loop they line up differently
     because each is a different length
this generates a new intermix of tones
     continually creting new pieces of music
           or at least new 'variations on a theme'

    These 3 pieces are samples from the Light Pools installation
     in Omotesando Gallery in Tokyo, Japan
     June 2007

The same 3 pieces of music were taken to Kyu Shiba Rikyu
     an Imperial Garden in Tokyo
     where some of the photographs in the Gallery Installation were shot
They were played on 3 portable music players
     in the Garden near the locations
     where the original photographs were shot

  instructions for use:  
    you can start each track independently
     or drag the play head forwards>> or backwards<<
     to change the relative positions
           each time creating a new mix of sound
