The video that is in the post below this one contains Anthony Fontano of The Needle Drop. The Needle Drop is a web-based vlog where Fontano discusses, critiques, and explores contemporary music releases and events. In this video, he describes his experience at a concert performance by the band Sunn-O))) (pronounced “sun”).
What captivates me about this video is not necessarily about the band Sunn-O)) but rather how Fantano describes his experience at the event.
“…their music really is an experience as opposed to notes…”
I hope that the interactive performance piece that Ralph, Kevin and I orchestrate will have a similar effect on our audience; an effect in which the audience’s presence in the space alone, induces deep physical and emotional responses within them.
In doing this, we do not aim to achieve brainwash, but rather vast extra-intellectual reflection on ideas of perception of human identity.
Am I a human being in this space?
Was I a human being before entering this space?
What is a human being?
Is there more to existence than just being human?
Did I have the choice to exist as a human?
Why was I born as a human?
Who am I?
Who was I before entering this space?
