A game of memory and change. The performer/player departs from a note and arrives at a new one, without realising. He/She writes down this arrival note, before it becomes a new departure point. This process continues. But a memory trail, ghost shadows of the arrival notes, come and go via electronics, not allowing ultimate oblivion.
