During the second half of the presentation, Budhaditya performed his work Aural Drift (commissioned by Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Frankfurt in 2021). He uses field recordings from seven different locations in the city of Offenbach as material for close listening and reflection, creating sonic archaeology which relies on technology – both for recording the sounds and for mediating the result – to enhance and recreate an immersive experience by "zooming in" on the ambient sounds. Using technology, details which are normally inaudible to normal human perception can be brought out, and an in-depth audio-cinematic experience of the locations can be created.
