"Walking Away, Running Back" is based on a 40 seconds short recording from 1990 in which the following can be heard: A crashing switch-on, steps that are walking away, "silence" and, shortly before the end, rapid steps running back ending in the crashing switch-off.

This version of "Walking Away, Running Back" is sort of double-framing the 1990 take by a new-made repetition of the old recording plus the performance of that same activity in space - here and now.

The original recording from 1990, 0:40 (alternative player)
