Back

Esperanza is typically referred to as a bassist, vocalist and composer. However, like most organisms growing in response to their environment, Esperanza is emerging into something she does not yet understand, nor is able to clarify through reference or language. Some "transcription factors" responsible for her development and expression could be named: poetry, magic, staging, play, opera, sound-spells, improvisation, movement, dance, bio-geometry, reiki, in-viability, U.S. pestilence, listening, smells, dream-talk, dialogue, demonic therapy, cat-tongue.
