Antoine has become a beloved collaborator in the study of the cultural physics of Maxine, both a spirit and a distant region of the universe where somehow all our expectations of dynamics are confounded by a pervasive but welcome obligation to only move our bodies by sound and its specters.
Antoine has told us a bit recently about his learning experience. To play, Antoine reports that he first learned to hear the presence of ghosts in the vibrations around him. Later he evolved into a language to communicate the coupling of his body to the life of these ghosts.
Then he decided "to hell with it! I'm going to stand near something that makes a wonderful sound and just let my arms move! Why not let the ghosts and the living interact? Why not let my dancing partner be this blasphemous ghost that makes me move in the first place? As my dance partner, Maxine has made me listen more carefully. that's what I've been trying to tell you idiots since you arrived!"
We are still learning how Antoine dances with the phantom dynamics of Maxine, as well as how in CREATION might we creatively interact with this deep listening being. We narrow-minded Earthlings are still learning to dance with ghosts!
