time folds is based on the above twelve words from a paragraph on distilling from The Periodic Table by Primo Levi. These words were used in Red Earth (for PL). The words and the ‘ox-plough’ shape in it are the basis for this piece. The music and the video were made at the same time, as two strands of the same piece.
