Radio broadcasts are synchronized with the clock. Programs are usually curated to fill a specific duration, a quarter, half or full hours. To Avoid disturbing silence on air, radio pieces have to be composed in a fixed length or else there will be gaps in between that need to be filled. 

Based on this unique characteristic of radio broadcast, we have developed a time-variant sound work that potentially fits into any time frame within a program by stretching/shrinking. Not knowing in what shape of time the work will appear evoked certain compositional approaches. Samples in different internal time scales make the sound reveal different characteristics based upon the given external duration. Arpeggios become pads – patterns become noise – There is a secret message hidden, but too fast to be ever heard?
