Constraints - is what I worked with during my stay at the Elsewhere, and is what I am grateful for. Constraints push me to experiment and find new directions. It is just like this blog post; I originally planned to edit and post the sound of rain drops hitting a tin sheet in the garden of Elsewhere in the morning of my departure, until I realized that it is not possible to post sound files with this account. So here it is, imagine it in your own way, through three different presentations of sonogram analysis of the sound that the Elsewhere played for me that morning.
With my deepest gratitude to the time I had (with my collaborator and dear friend Sibylle Irma) and people I met at Elsewhere, I look forward to see future endeavors of the Elsewhere and its supportive community.
