Line Is Drawn

Film / Moving Image, Multi-disciplinary, Music


The accelerators of prosperity and connection are now the accelerators of crisis. In tomorrow's world, everything will either change or be changed.

Line Is Drawn is music in slow time. For thirty minutes, the musicians play, bathed in light and sound. An old song forms a cavernous soundscape in which time seems to barely pass.

= = =

the line it is drawn, the curse it is cast

the slow one now will later be fast

as the present now, will later be past

the order is rapidly fading

and the first one now will later be last
