I've been working in a variety of media, from virtual worlds 
through the Cave through music improvisation, etc. I'll present 
materials from all of this, within a framework of thinking 
through blankness, terror, and broken worlds. There is material 
from distorted motion capture employed in virtual worlds; 
considerations of terror and genocide in terms of anguish and 
the unutterable; phenomenology of blizzards and whiteout; revrev 
- live reverse reverberation or anticipatory music; and 
practical-theoretical issues of gamespace/edgespace.

I'll go for as long as people are interested.
