Tim's Holiday Lectures Gift 2: The Halting Problem

My love poem to SonicActs. This group of lovely people spent three whole years exploring dark ecology in the most physical and often risky way, making all kinds of stunning art in Arctic Russia and Norway, presenting work in Amsterdam and elsewhere, and involving me all over the place.

The talk followed an amazing, intense piece by Jana Winderen, who records underwater sound. Imagine the first movement of a gigantic Mahler symphony, only using live mixed fish and water and boat sounds...I'll never forget how she pushed the bass frequencies during that.

People were crying after my one, me included. The "q&a" was a 40 minute mind meld that just went on and on and on...pure solidarity.
