In this work I chose a few of my favourite cacti as musical metaphors for five possible sonic topologies. During the composition of the work, their capricious and voluptuous geometry served me as a model to invent virtual spaces, fluxes, impacts, variable symmetries, landscapes, whirlwinds and sonic trajectories, whilst specifics regarding their properties provided the context for more anecdotal images.
