In Case of Fire

"In case of fire, stay calm!" This statement is translated into morse code, each dash/ dot being replaced by corresponding drum sounds. The resulting rhythm is given visual representation through an LED panel situated at the top of the fire tower. Within the composition the phrase is repeated, each repetition incorporating an increase of tempo and additional percussive instrumentation. The resulting crescendo has the effect of obliterating the original meaning of the code.
