The earthworm travels on radio frequencies, earthy hacks and conglomerates of audio matter. S/he passes through mosquito clouds (yes, this earthworm can fly!), bird songs, thunderstorms, attends a Finnish summer theatre show, listens to a boy and his mother singing, visits the acoustic remnants of a German garden show, finds happiness in the ringing of porcelain bells and, finally, merges into silence and is gone. Voices: Teuri Haarla, interview at Galerie Hilbertraum, 16th January 2016, Berlin, Germany; Unknown but stunningly convincing actors of a "kesäteatteri" 2010 in Mid Finland; Gibrain and Virpi Nurmi, Gießen, Germany, 2014.
