The piece addresses the challenging nine stages related to gestating and giving birth – 9 months and 9 cm of dilatation. It is assembled as a spiral of loudspeakers with proportional increase in size, and the last station is a lamp, a multlayered symbolic element. The soundscape evolves from the coincidences of mother and baby’s heart beat frequencies, providing in each station an atmosphere of the corresponding gestational month. It integrates the Binômio series of aesthetic experiments on mother-offspring bondings, which envisions interlacing material and symbolic relationships of affection, intimate and universal aspects, frictioning subjects, organic and machinic elements.
