As a reflection of the impermanence of the human body and all that it encounters, a car's parts are suspended in space becoming a drum kit propelled by the drummer's amplified heartbeat. This vehicle is of the subterranean realm of things mysterious and hidden. It is interwoven with components of a drum kit and heralds what occurs below the threshold of consciousness like a newly formed neural pathway between states of transformation. Throughout the evening an eclectic mix of musicians animate this piece, fueled by the beat that everyone carries within.
