The songs and poems they performed appear in NEW 3 and NEW 4. We won't ask why it took so long for this to find its way onto YouTube.

Plug in your headphones and watch the show on the Factory Seconds channel (yes, that is a librarian putting away books in the background)

January 2009 Etel Adnan's Seasons is published
"Are we a dream, a nightmare, a fulfillment? The desire for permanence has given way to the eminence of the ephemeral.

We are the looking, the heat, and the voyage." -- Etel Adnan
