Sound for cosmonauts: composed in memory of Tina Joosten (1952-2014); for thinking time/evolution folding back onto itself. Yamantaka is the destroyer of death in Tibetan Tantrism, whose dart or lightning bolt of Enlightenment (a social-enhancement technology supporting states of onto-epistemic suspension) cuts across the scales of temporality. Yamantaka's dart cuts through all levels of abstraction, with an evolving form and a voice universalized. This gesture is at once akin to the subtleties of the Yoneda Lemma mathematical theorem, as that which makes connections between a universal world of conceptual functors and a universal world of continuous morphisms.

This piece for butō explores the protoplasmic emptiness of living time in “glitch” like expositions – from the simultaneity of living and dying comes the rupture of Yamantaka's dart. In butō, this space appears to extend reality, as that which is already open and submerged.
