'The 15 voice pieces presented here consist exclusively of voice recordings of New Yorkers speaking the same words and phrases in their respective mother tongue. The three to five minutes long voice sculptures emerge from the individual sound character of the respective voices, the influence of rhythmic and melodic textures, as well as the associative and reductionist assemblage and modification of the composer.' (from the sleeve notes)
