And All the Birds Sing Bass is an ongoing project focusing on transformation and the amplification of connectedness through collective listening and experience. The practice of coming together, bringing people together and creating spaces that allow for dreaming and imagining other ways of being and foregrounding nonlinear thinking and experience, this is just one step in the complicated process of understanding ourselves and each other, and the possibility of breaking the constraints of our time and start dreaming up new sets of relationships.
