Speech Perceptions refers to the processes of humans or objects (that produce sound) use in order to be able to interpret and understand sound in a musical or language context. I have tried to combine two worlds. In one, the flow has a more articulated and spoken material and in the other, time will be more stationary and condense, with pointillist constellations that will articulate the space in a very subtle way. All these being a matter of rhetoric and speech perceptions.
