About the work
The work includes an online video and downloadable MP3 of Amit Pitaru performing the Storm King composition on his SWS machine (see picture). The artist recommends to first look at the video and then listen to the sound file.
Due to the frequency range of the piece, its recommended to use good earphones or an adequate sound system with a sub-woofer component (rather then computer or I-Pod speakers).
