Blue Crystal is a part of the series: Crystalline (1988), Hommage en cristal (1991), Metallic Crystal (1994-95), Crystalline II and III (1995-96, 2000). The titles suggest cold sonic sculptures, and my intention was to project images of crystals in sound and space. In Blue Crystal, a blue tint and haze were added to the texture.
