THERE IS NO THERE THERE
Resonant sound sculptural installation and live composition.
“The minute you or anybody else knows what you are you are not it, you are what you or anybody else knows you are and as everything in living is made up of finding out what you are it is extraordinarily difficult really not to know what you are and yet to be that thing.”
“…There is no there there.”
