(p) 1991 Tangible Touch Music (ASCAP). All rights reserved.

A short dizzying stew of music and narrative -- quantum physics, languages, chants, stories, scientists, banquets, distant galaxies, songs, objects, and desire. Based on text fragments from the writings of the late Italian writer and Nobel Prize winner, Italo Calvino. Composed and performed by Moss with additional voice inserts spoken by Maldwyn and Ichi Ikeda.
