Musical performances by members of Clipd Beaks, Mwahaha, and White Cloud, Bryan Von Reuter, and Taser Island:
"Never afraid to delve head first into the mysterious and ethereal, the members of White Cloud, Mwahaha and Clipd Beaks have created distinct but complementary worlds sonically and aesthetically over the past few years. The members of these three groups will share and rotate instrumental duties to create an improvised sonic landscape paired with visuals by Bryan Von Reuter."
