about

Written while Terry was a Grad Student as UC Berkeley and creating Fluxus type concerts with fellow "enfante terrible" La Monte Young and influenced by Young's "Stasis" theories.....This is an early misty work that works only in the soft dynamic range. It is inspired by the sounds of 1950's fog horns drifting up from San Francisco Bay to Terry and Ann's Potrero Hill home. This quartet tries to capture the seemingly random interaction these foghorns produced.
