Lighting by josie j and Brenn Lowe
heavy improvisation, desert dirging, angular arabesques & fleeting spectrums
WHEREAS HOWEVER summons the shamanistic landscape of a sonic arc lit by video projection and traversed by a troupe of performers whose movement tells the tale.
Constituted of the seamless procession several groups, each piece gathers momentu
m overlapping into the next in moments of collaboration between like and un-like.
Happenstance erodes whilst invigorating contrasts galvanize.
The night also heralds release of CT ASSAULTS' and PRESENT's cassette split on Sanity Muffin Records!

we could elaborate on things, specify how we shall move, or even what may happen. certainly there have been times in which the discussions yielded these kinds of particulars….but…you know maybe thats not the communication we should have at this moment. here and now. what is needed, ultimately, is a space for intimacy a
nd connection that begins to push against a possibility. the dynamic potential of a tribe carrying torches deep within bowels of the earth. the cavernous geological womb…watching the fire dance and the luminous rhythm create a shifting choreography with the animals painted on the walls.
this place can also be a bedroom or cinema or a warehouse. they them us we will congregate and gather to help each other thrive. to find ways of becoming a peoples of instantaneous magnitudes blossoming into the infinite impermanence… or , at the very least, we can make something happen that is new and for us. something whose precedent is an elaborate tapestry of interwoven histories extending along fractal meridians into the future and past lives of the selves we always knew we could be…come with me ill follow you.
dancing. summoning sounds. trying to conjure the numinous materiality. bass. gazes and silences.
this event is focused around an extended improvisation between groups and projects. every individual will be given a certain space-time frame in which to perform their personal work. however, this space-time frame will emerge from and merge with a larger collective platform. sights, musics, and costumed forms will be improvising into and out of each other.

PRESENT (PSYCHEDELIC SOUL SONIC)
CONSCIOUS SUMMARY- (EAR VIBRATION STIMULANTS)
SPECIAL performance by
A magical night in Joshua Tree hosted at FUvRSTWORLD Furst World is stunning artistic oasis and theater located about an hour and a half outside of Los Angeles in the fabulous rocky high lands of Joshua Tree. Bobby Furst is an artist who creates and facilitates all varieties of visionary and political arts
Map of the drive-
There will be a Caravan Saturday morning, but we hope you can arrive at your convenience.
D3C0D3D is itself a ritual in visual and sonic rites in which the experiencer is lead into psychedelic realms through over lapping multi projected video and tonal tides which wash over the consciousness of the participant to allow for multidimensional decoding of subconscious thoughts and universal higher self concepts.
I felt Furst world would be an amazing place to bring in new energies and set the intentions of the year to come. There is also intended interactive elements, games, photobooths, face painting and magic. We are all here to entertain and inspire each other. I intend a performance aspect which involves professional fire swallowers and spinners. These aspects will be safely outside in the sand and should also include a portable aerial pyramid (allegedly) for what promises to offer an enticing and flowing circus environment. I anticipate these are all professional artists who create with purpose and safety is number one. Environmentalism is also paramount, we are fans of the "leave no trace" policy. Safety and cleanliness are the fulcrum by which this event pivots. In all, I want to assure that it will be a fun night where every one can really absorb a fully interactive spectacle while being responsible for their trash. I have a cleaning crew set up and all that we do is portable and makes zero impact on the environment and certainly no impact on the wonderful art installations.
We will arrive saturday afternoon to set up,claim campers or camp sights joshua tree hike after set up, then performances all night and a casual sunday morning breakfast, yoga workshop then lunch and good times. Clean up by sunfall and head off into the sunset on sunday night. Performers will be paid in tips and donations, some free food, beverages, fun and camping areas will be provided, but its encouraged you bring stuff to share as well. Invite any and all conscious people who will respect the lands, but all friends are welcome. There is also a pool and jaquzi so swim wear is advisable. I look forward very much to this event. If you have any concerns or creative ideas please let me know. Food is a potluck Everyone is encouraged to bring some food to share in team building and PLEASE BRING FIREWOOD!
