"The development and reproduction of new sound spaces, Move Ground is based on the soundtrack of an audio-visual installation of the same title that was premiered at the third Horkunst Festival in Erlangen, Germany in 2005. Field recordings from locations with inspiring acoustic qualities in Cologne were edited and mixed with select electronic sounds to create a sonic journey exploring varying external and internal spaces, providing an experience of the atmosphere and the spatial dimensions of the different locations. Move Ground was recorded and mixed by Andrés Krause in 2004-2006." "From the top you can make out the wonderful and awesome sight of the plains that lie below, worn out at the foot of the city. On the horizon tall brick chimneys, round and square, vomit billows of soot into the clouds, while little further down, barely passing over the flat roofs of workshops covered in bituminized felt and sheet metal, whistling jets of white steam escape from thin aluminum flue pipes. A great silence descends over the plain as the rumble of the city dies out little by little and the noise from distant factories reaches you but falteringly. Sometimes, however, like a horrible complaint, you can hear the dull, raucous whistle of trains from the station as they pass, hidden by an embankment planted with acacias and ash trees. Finally, in the distance, in the far distance, a large white road climbs a hill and loses itself in the sky, its summit crowned by a billow of dust, like a cloud stirred up by an invisible horse drawn cart, hidden by the curve of the earth."
