These soundscapes were recorded for a series of performances of the same name that were held in Bremen, Germany from 25. through 30. May 1999 featured a room installation called Prima Res. The first part of this CD is the music from this installation: a loop of 11 min., based on a collage of recordings, mainly from the reconstruction of the train station in Bremen that took several months. On two occassions, these were mixed with recordings from a village in Wendland, Lower Saxony, and London to contrast the position of Bremen between a rural village and a metropolis. The second track was recorded live during the vernissage of this installation. It forms a counter-utopia of a city without cultural borders. Stressing its heterogenity, it mixes sounds from different cultures not in the sense of an abstract multiculturalism, where every culture has its fixed place, but as a deconstruction of arbitrary rasters and splittings. The title refers to Hakim Bey's notion of spontaneously and temporarily realizing utopian drafts ("Temporary Autonomous Zone").

CDr comes with a plastic bag filled with sand.
