Genre: Experimental

Music: Rick Reed. Stereo track best heard comfortably loud (gets quiet towards end) and as "virtual surround" 5.1. *Throbbing light not for persons afflicted with epilepsy. We seem to be seeing a rustic landscape, perhaps. Everything here seems to be a perhaps, including allusions to Beauty and the Beat and if we are or are not seeing in 3-D. As in real life, everything is in constant motion (although unlike life not necessarily going anywhere, more like suspended in motion),achieving or foregoing distinction as specific entities. Rick Reed dpes the Mendelsohn and here too lines are blurred between life-recording and atral electrons at play.
