A basis frequency of 25Hz buzzes perceptibly at the lower levels of ocular flicker-fusion. Provided with a line pressure of 220-volts, the transformers wind through their various step-up and step-down induction procedures whilst their resistance to power leaves them heated, angry, heavy.

Tactile digits engage in their manipulations sending forth a cloud of psycho-sexual frustrations, revelations, computations. This emotional storm zapping to the positive but perpetually shifting ground plane, dangerously floating above the mains, modulated by half a century of shoddy workmanship, and neutralized by a sea of self-induced noise.
