    What we tried to do in Current Location, the previous chelfitsch opus, was to make music on the order of lighting and set design.

    For Ground and Floor, we are taking an approach that is closer to the actors.

    For Ground and Floor, we are taking an approach that is closer to the actors.
    We took to heart the inevitability of the actors and music being together on the stage, and decided to create states of natural coexistence for sound and the human body, along with several patterns of relation between the two.

    For these reasons, we composed music to fit the respective actors.

    For one actor, we made music that would seem to pass through the body; for another, we strove for sounds that would exert a direct pressure.
    In some cases, we set out to make music in which things happen apart from the happenings in the stage performance, and aimed for sporadic dovetailing with the movements of the actors.

    We would be delighted if these attempts have the desired effects and produce a closely knit give-and-take between sound and the human body.
