Text: Ants are generating sounds by digging paths and chambers. The sounds are tones of musical instruments of symphonic orchestra. In four floors are strings, woodwinds, braswinds and others. Every instrument has its own zone, where the tones are placed according to a tone grid. Final sound composition is a transcript of the ant house construction.
