Arika describes this program as follows:

Sean Meehan is a leading improvising percussionist from New York. He creates performances that use music to explore the social construction of space. Meehan plays just a snare drum, with cymbals or forks. He produces electronic, rattling tones from them using just a dowel and friction. It might be a touch reductive to talk just of the sounds he makes, though. We think he uses percussion as a means to slow down and mark time, so as to create a kind of social patience for, and also an openness to, the non-aural aspects of listening together—the spatial and social characteristics of a specific setting, time, and group of people.
