Ritual No. 1: COUNTING BIRDS features a group of participants simultaneously vocalizing a self-referential mantra. For three hours they will count in ascending order —using each number's value (in seconds) to determine the length of the vocal expression of the very same number i.e. "ONE" in one second, "TWO" in two seconds..."THIRTY" in 30 seconds, etc. It doesn't take long to reach a point of vocal abstraction.
