VOICES WITH DIALOGUES

This is a duet of water and green leaves. By nature, water and leaves are completely different and each has its unique living spaces. Yet when two of them are put together in the same living space, instantly they leave on each other various marks and tracks at various timing.
Those marks and tracks are results of waving leaves that strike water or rushing current that passes over leaves.
Their interaction is just like the quasi-dialogue effect between two active instruments.
