About

How can spiny animals get close to each other?

The image comes from the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, who uses it to illustrate a point about human relationships. (It probably applies less accurately to actual hedgehogs.) By way of a creative misunderstanding, there is a link to the inherent fragility of the sound materials, which nonetheless are formed into composite timbres.
