  'There is nothing else but sound, all that exists is vibration.'

Hear with your body. This is not about music. This is not about performance
or the performer. The goal is sound and the explicit translation of sound
into physical force. The goal is internal and external realization. It is

about the total acoustic sense of space -- observing sound to measure the
capacity of architecture. It is about the phenomenon of resonance or
sympathetic vibration -- all things working in one continuum.
