I imagine a person walking, receiving sound drops and spinning them into music. Sound can be happy and exciting. It can comfort you, fill you with very special joy. However, sound is also something you cannot avoid. Sound can be ominous. It approaches you and crowds you with its vivid overwhelming presence. It is up to the viewer if this person is raising both hands joyously, or as a sign of surrender.
