My son Aslak was born early in the morning 2013-11-11. It was a long and complicated birth, that ended in Cesarean section. During the birth that took 17 hours, I recorded the sounds from start to end, including medicination machinery, nitrous oxide breathing machines, heat beats, water flowing and my girlfriend in pain, all ending with the very first sounds from Aslak. I have combined these sounds with string resonances from my parents old out of tune grand piano. The whole piece is 17 minutes, one minute for each hour and it is in chronological order.
