CAVE BEARS: TRAGIC CEREMONY Part screaming and distorted pulses, young girl singing to acoustic guitars, drums and guitars singing, shouting, all lo fi out of tune snatches of music, movie films, overloaded tape. A general mix of domestic sound objects resembling a 'found' montage of notes, photographs and debris drunken parties messing with stuff, autobiographical, psychoanalytical dream associations, and in-jokes polished as art then discarded. Installations of old stuffed toys and Barbie dolls, cigarette cards and DC comics. Poignancy of the pointless, the deification of the banal. like a family to which one doesn't belong, though it survives and thrives, from the outside one is like the one who doesn't know the in-joke, like the child who doesn't understand the grown ups or the grown up who doesn't understand the child, one is made to feel terribly alone.

My story: Many 1000's of years ago, I was an artist like you. I made the most art anyone had ever seen. Then I made the best art of all and I won. Now I live in a castle and cast spells all day. My life is over, but I can never die. My crystals are in chaos. Can you help me capture them?
