It was my wife who pointed out to me that I tend to fidget with objects for long periods of time. Feeling, manipulating, figuring them out as if touch were the only sense available to me. The resulting sounds tend to annoy her after some time. It was this vice that became the germ for this piece. Sound sources include a bicycle, foam, paper, metal water canteen, bicycle helmet, a lamp, and my wedding ring taped on a number of different surfaces.
