It seems almost perverse how self-declarations and self-affirmation are being shouted in one’s face and individuality is being broadcast through all channels of our communication network. In our digital-real continuum the existence and ā€žraison dā€™ĆŖtreā€œ is constituted by visibility ā€“ while invisibility is equivalent to non-existence. In #AsPresentAsPossible the musicians define their presence by a vanishing self, entering the stage without instruments and exploring the space between defining and being defined, between projecting and being projection. “I’m a white page, in a soundscape, on a wide stage, I’m a white page”.
