Description

This project is the result of an intermingling of stories toldby those who have been struck by a sensation of instantconnection with another. In the classical world such pricks from a dart of Eros were calledTheia Mania (madness from the Gods).Heidi Zednik and I began by collecting audio versions of stories told by those willing to participate in the project.We recorded 12 such stories and these are the basis for both the text and audio portions of this piece. Two of the stories I wished to include could not be told by their subjects, so I wrote my own versions, presented as oral presentations onthe CD.
