The composition “kleine winter” by the sound artist meinin is based on the playback process of a vinyl record, in which the quill of a pigeon’s feather acts as a pickup. The initial level of noise is gradually structured metrically by the steady rotation of the record, resulting in multi-tone motifs and finally repetitive melody. There are also pictures taken with old mobile phones, fragments of personal memories. The piece of music was the inspiration for connecting the images filmed on different trips. In the confrontation of the filmic and musical material, a RailroadSong gradually emerges.
