Each composition of this CD is dedicated to a person, or to the work of a person: Malcolm Goldstein, Amadeu Antonio Kiowa, Ingeborg Bachmann, Elvis Presley and Yoko Tawada.

Each handmade CD-bag is unique because it is part of a huge painting which has been cut into a thousand pieces. With the handwritten number and letter you can find somewhere on your CD-bag, you can figure out, which part of the painting you are holding in your hands.
