A repeating gesture—an effortful pushing of stone across paper—is used to mark time, the performance space, and the surface of the paper. 30 Califone tape decks, each play a 10 minute tape, 1/2 of altered recordings of glaciers, 1/2 the notes of a single chord of Morton Feldman's Three Voices. One minute cycles of movement, activating each tape deck in turn, create an incrementally altered visual and sonic landscape.
