Notice!

The CD contains two long tracks.

The digital data[Edit for Bandcamp] is a re-edited version.

Droplets of water are set to drip from three infusion containers suspended from the ceiling, each at a different speed.
Each of the three players produce sound by rubbing with their fingers a wine glass that catches the droplets from one of the containers, with the scale changing according to the amount of water that accumulates.
The first track documents this process for ten minutes, during which the players continuously watched the water droplets fall.
The second track documents the players continually rubbing the glasses until the water dripping is complete.
Both tracks make audible how the level of 300cc water gradually shifts.
