  5. CRUISE 4AIDE
    During the 6th San Francisco Electronic Music Festival gal*in_dog performs Criuse 4ide, his second cyber totemic sound object. An instrument designed to exorcise a political climate of greed and oppression in which the real meaning of spirituality seems to have fade away: An antenna in the shape of a cross that translates the electromagnetic fields present in utilitarian objects into sound.
    Beyond a universal understanding of the cross as a Christian symbol, the cross represents, among many other things, the tree of life (middle ages), the four cardinal points (Aztec/American Indian) and the middle point between heaven and earth.
    In his second cyber-totemic object, gal*in_dog reclaims the symbol of the cross as a spiritual symbol. An instrument of cleansing and a symbol of perception and not of imposition.
