Wherever we are,
what we hear is
mostly noise.
When we ignore it,
it disturbs us.
When we listen to it,
we find it fascinating.

It's Division Place and Morgan in East Williamsburg Brooklyn. Was there on 4/29 . Turns out there is a biker clubhouse right on the corner of the intersection. I've had people approach me at some locations to ask what I'm doing but this was a first: trying to explain John Cage, 49 Waltzes, running city streets and all that to two vest-wearing bikers from the Unknown MC. We all ended up being cool with each other but they were definitely not looking to pose or participate in any video.
