"I recorded the sound of a very close gunshot and used that as the single source for a digital sound piece. The idea was to take that sound and work with a mathematician whose specialty was equations. We took the sound and morphed it into an 11-minute summer rainstorm that abruptly comes and then recedes off into the horizon. So after eleven minutes, and then ten seconds of silence, the gunshot goes off again."
