fabrication process marks scored into the floor movements now still odor of dust a room temporarily sealed a dehumidifier suspended at eye level a gutter on a slope for the overspill a reflecting pool

P.L.A.N.E.S. was a live concert of Seaman performing with tapes and a special substitution cypher tape loop at Experimental Intermedia Foundation NYC. DNA Hoover assisted. The sung texts were quite elaborate.

Key Concepts: substitution cyphers, experimental texts, readymade texts as sound art, experimental music, sound art.
