This innovative and immersive digital work, commissioned by the May Festival Youth Chorus, is based on texts of Gertrude Stein and allows the listener to explore and alter the piece in real time.

Instructions:
1. Make sure your sound is on.
2. Use your mouse to click on icons and move sliders.
3. Get ready - the mouse moves your field of vision just like your head does!
4. The piece will begin again when you’ve reached the end, so you can go again and try new things.
5. Have fun!
