The "Song" in Song + Distance refers not to the various popular song structures we hear everyday but, rather, to the concept of expression. The song in "singing one's heart out." The "Distance" refers to the concept of experience. The moment we experience something we are immediately at a distance from it. We retain our experience of the event but not the event itself. The song helps us choose the quality of this distance and the depth of the experience. Song and distance, expression and experience, emotion and memory, melody and the sounds around us.

"Miguel Frasconi uses electronics, glass bellbowls, mbiras, voice, toy pianos, and other unusual instruments to create a unique, imaginative music that combines western and non-western aesthetics and structures." -
