MAKS @ Gold Sounds
MAKS performing at Gold Sounds on 3/21/2019, a fine venue. This work explores what happens at the busy intersection of popular culture, avant garde tropes (think John Cage), and interpersonal emotional exploration. This is a dangerous intersection, many accidents – please wait for the walk light and always use your blinker. Documentation by 185668232.
