Look at the reference image and stare at the red star on the girl’s nose for 30 seconds. Turn your eyes towards stars. Keep blinking your eyes!

In the music composition “Hand saw welt-all star” the world of realness meets world of illusion. Hard physical “work” of musicians, real physical effort is transformed through unconventional performance techniques, preparation of instruments with aluminum foil and artificial amplification into “unspecified” sound blinking. As outcome of all compositional “tricks” comes vibrant, metallic, flickering pulse.
