The cloud of ubiquitous communication channels appears as a sonic texture, various light sources are turned into instruments. Spectral Cities is a reference to various congested areas around the globe. Even though there is a vast diversity of signals and an continuously changing perspective, the piece reminds us clearly of the fragile state the overloaded system we live in can be found at the moment.
