Andalusian Visions is an array of paths crisscrossing the desert. Landscape photographs by CYRIL CAINE portray the deserts of Andalusia and the southwestern United States. A poem in eight parts by STUART DISCHELL traces a journey whose end echoes in the desert. A French translation of Dischell’s poem and eight pieces of experimental music, both by LAURENT ESTOPPEY, present a new dimension to the experience.
