'Nervus vagus' is an electroacoustic music work that consists of stretched granular motives during the entire piece. They are mixed with voices and stories told by people of different ages and gender. Stories blossom out of humorous fairytales told by a five year old child, stories about death, narrations of mindfulness, stories about the consequences of WW2, deportation during the Stalin regime and life in Siberia. Voices along with granules become twitching sonic tissues as neurons connect each other, as Nervus Vagus (wandering), which surrounds and connects entire human body.
