This video is an experiment with sound and multimodality, with connection and discord. It exposes some meanings and materialities of writing and composing, and it borrows the musical concepts chord and fugue. It is an exploration of rhetoric and of chora, an inventional method that is intuited and felt, not reasoned out or articulated. Please begin with the video. You will hear sounds and voices, some familiar, some strange, and you will see images and words, some decodable, some ephemeral.
