The Tracking Noise series pursues the idea to explore auditive and semantic spaces between Music and Noise. The contradictions and utopias of Noise–Music are the compositional field of speculation. In Tracking Noise #4, the instrumentation is reduced to simple elements: a light dimmer, a loose cable, and a switcher. Additionally, there is a big red button in the middle of the table. With these simple elements the performers have the control over time of the music events and evoke the imaginary of a table game.
