17-Micah Torrance - The Joep Pieter Can-Dada inreal, 2011- 09’57”
from West Bay, Cayman Islands.

I'm working at this project since 1968, began with sound recording in the mid-seventies and with video art at the beginning 21th century, but made my Dada public just a bit more than over one year ago, when I stopped my professional other project "landscape design and gardeneering".
A MARABUcaribe project by Micah Torrance – This is one invitation to an inner journey by cosmic visual-music. MARABUcaribe abducts us into an imaginary parallel universe. It don't open us no exorbitant scenarios of fantastic, unexplored galaxies, but gives us a gap-wide access to a world that is just like ours, only different. Before us is evident a "gesamtkunstwerk", a work of cumulative art crafted in over 40 years, consisting of collages, paintings, drawings, plastic arts, photography, music, video and inventing stories as it couldn't be more insufficient. This is not about "Dadaism' or "Neodadaism". It is just Dada.
It's all made by me and part of my art project MARABUcaribe:

18-Angelo Secondini - Aurall 55, 2012 - 08’01”
from Ostra, Italy.

Aurall 55 fom Part II of Aural: an inner deep abstract ambient – music & video project by cometa (Angelo Seconndini) Enough / At the end will just love / love yourself / love for him / for her / for art that attempt to justify our existence / a useless little love / a little thing leaning in a corner / enough . / ... and an aura like a shadow in a vacuum... before... and after...
Cometa is a truly captivating artist of some considerable merit. Being able to create wonderful music and sound constructions in a very accomplished manner. He is able to capture many essences and feelings, in an emotive and touching way, being able to cope with the expression of moods and sensations over many genres, with an amazing ability to fuse everything from classical to electronic minimalism. As an artist, he is a very idealistic and philosophic human being, with a heart of gold. The latter being the best fusion that his musical expression can and does convey.

from Oviedo (Asturias), Spain.

Hoy, este cuerpo ya no recuerda aquellas caricias que nunca sintió. Cada centímetro de nuestra piel sigue siendo hoy, otra vez, virgen ansiosa a la espera de esa caricia que le haga tremolar. Sentimientos que también se borrarán de su piel (...). La memoria no tiene cuerpo. Habla, cuerpo, cuenta tu gran historia de pasión y de cansancio, porque tu historia será necesariamente breve.
