Musical score written through the transcription of a daily occurrence. The composition was written from the translation to musical language of an elevator’s movement for ninety minutes. Specific parameters (tempo and tone) were assigned to the passengers’ variants (floor and age).

The score is meant to be performed on a cello because of the similarity between this string instrument and the mechanism that makes the elevator work.

Staple-bound, edition of 500.
