The Glam metal band Ratt's music video of their one hit wonder «Round And Round» from 1984 is the background for this piece. Not Ratt’s music, but body language, gestures and visual effects in the video are used as a base for creating a whole new sound. Events that one might overlook are enlarged and highlighted for listening and consideration.
