In Prelude the subject’s rhythmic motion and bodily weight affect the setting. A shadow falls across the wall; the creak of floorboards echoes through the space. The man hears his own weight as he connects with the floor, while seemingly wrestling with his own shadow and struggling to affect his surroundings through sound.
