Chains2_2 is a soundscape that forms part of a project begun by sound artist Julia Eckhardt and Q-O2 in February 2012. Several artists participated in the project, which is based on one of Eckhardt's soundtracks. Every participant was asked to respond to the soundtrack, without knowing that it was Eckhardt's, by delivering a seven-minute soundtrack of their own (field recording or soundscape).
Chains2_2 evokes the familiar by returning from time to time to the original sound recording. On the other hand, it intrigues and prompts questions through the transformation of the original recording. The tracks build up tension that fuses with and fades into a melodic transformation of street noise.
