This piece was written as a commission for the Te Pātaka Toi Adam Art Gallery exhibition Listening Stones Jumping Rocks curated by Sophie Thorn and Susan Ballard. Len Lye’s Universe (1963-1976) was a part of this show and forms the central part of this composition. Universe should be treated as an equal and agential member of the ensemble throughout.
