Zbeen ~ K-frame

K-frame is a chemical experiment that takes place under loose supervision.  The “k-frame” is the framework in which the sonics develop: the programming of Ennio Mazzon, the electronics of Gianluca Favaron and the field recordings of each.  Force, magnitude, velocity and direction are all listed as
