With the exception of the electronics, all of the sounds in this piece are produced by metal objects and instruments. The guitar and electronics are tuned to the overtones of a Burmese kyeezee bell, which introduces each of the increasingly long sections. A paratactic approach is taken with regards to form—a mathematically derived macrostructure is inhabited by gestures and collisions that provide the listener with the illusion of narrative development.
"SHIRT OF NOISE: Garment, fabric, or residue that absorbs and holds sound, storying messages for journeys. Its loudness cannot by soothed. It can destroy the member which inhabits it."
—Ben Marcus, "The Age of Wire and String"
