one and one and one


an entirely new principle for choreography and dance
dancer as _counterpoise_ ground system
conductivity dependent upon proximity plus vegetation moisture content
sound combination of:
  a background industrial noise
  b spherics and other vlf entities
  c counterpoise interference

thoughtless the words that are spoken here.
we were with electric-antenna-azure / the landscape
'was electric' and she flew (moved/clogged/danced) among the particles
almost always inaudible swirling around the world in our direction
   http://www.asondheim.org/elektra.mpg
nothing may be made of all of this, nothing, however there are others
in the world which is unseen and unknown, nevertheless grips us
against all will

grounded body interference and part of planetary worlding
here one inhabits the cosmos
we are just beginning sound exploration and dream-time rendering
  of atmospheric layerings

no microphone was used, vlf radio fed directly into mic input of video
camera, heavy grounding through metal-pipe table, vertical antenna

one and one and one
