“Look deep within a source of essential sound.  See gleaming colors pour out of live music  and run together inside both eyes,  all falling as well into open ears. Two-hands listening can breathe together, move, dance and flow across horizon space dropping wet colors down through time.” 

- Jeff Schlanger
