One of the directions in collaborations by Aleksey Grachev and Sergey Komarov, is the study of animate and inanimate noises found in nature. In this work, the artists conduct an analysis of time-space. Using precise accelerometers and amplifiers, they register the noise of sand that trickles in an hourglass on the magnetic tape. This sound is analyzed using a regenerating-computing system, accurate to a grain, and the "quanta" of time gets recounted. The work is stereophonic: sound reflects the time, and, in effect, it is time departing from one headphone channel and arriving in the opposite one, having flown through the space listener. This installation is simultaneously a vocalization of time and an attempt to quantize and recount it.
