Sound is a tricky little sign. Constantly fleeing, leaking, and disappearing into difference, sound organizes itself momentarily, only to disorganize its own forms and content, freeing up an intense material of expression. ‘Patapreface provides a fabulated 'beginners guide' to understanding this elusive nature of sound, including its mechanical waves, fundamental frequencies, and double-helices of obfuscatory reflections.
