This song, 6 Ft, by the Beef has space like qualities. It maybe the distorted guitars in the beginning, the muffled voices in the background or the noise frequencies in the latter minutes, but the thing is they suggest a uniquely ethereal sound. This music conveys, at certain moments, the unmistakable aura of space-rock. When the possibility came to set something up for the concert of the De Prop cycle in La Pedrera, it became necessary to use a hyper-space iconography to accompany with images this song from Beef Sings Tongues (1999).
