Jan Kees Helms : Comfort

Once every two weeks Jan Kees Helms works as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital during the night while most of the people are sleeping. It is quiet but there is no complete silence: Every night he hears the same sounds from the heating, a chair, the door, walking at the stairs and an old computer. He recorded these sounds during one night. The next night he mixed them as two layers without any additional processing, to keep the sound of the building as original as possible. The meaning was to make a pure composition with only the sounds of the night during that short period of two nights.
