Circling The Edge Of The Prescient Moment
Text by Barry Gerson;

"My project, from the beginning, has been to transform earthly reality into an aspect of an alternate reality, mirroring what I feel to be the ethereal make-up of the Universe. I use digital moving and still images to achieve this pupose, sometimes by placing these images in conjunction with worldly objects and sometimes on their own- always seeking a truer and purer visionary experience. “Circling The Edge of the Prescient Moment” is so much about circularity and shifts in time and motion that it's very visual presents called out to me to add sound. I had been thrilled by Tibetan monk throat singing for many years, recognizing it's ability to transport one's very soul to another dimension. It occurred to me that I might be able to perform throat throat singing, as it seemed both natural to me and possible. So, I performed it for the sound track. I am moved by it's totality and wish to share it with you."
