17th Bethnal & 2nd St. (2013) is a fragmental journey into the soundscape of three detachment processes from the South of the City: Number 17 on third floor (South of Milano), Florida St. in Bethnal (South of London), 2nd St (South of NYC).
Each part, recorded by following a process of mnemonic deconstruction, brings to light a fictive sense of openness between the perception of emotional and geographical belonging and the struggle with the surrounding physical environment.
