"communication within society and within the mind is not restricted to the language of words uttered or read...."
~ Roger Reynolds, MIND MODELS, 1975, Praeger Publishers

“About it [Sanctuary], Gramophone writes: 'Reynolds goes right inside sound. … Here’s the most outstandingly original view of percussion since Varèse’s‘ Ionisation’.”

PASSAGE is a collaborative project realized by composer-author Reynolds with artist Stacie Birky Greene and editors Robert Kirzinger and Karen Reynolds. Through graphic manipulations, it melds texts written by Reynolds with images he selected such that a metaphoric “viscosity” arises, and the reader/apprehender’s experience is constantly modulated. Reynolds has performed intermedia PASSAGE events in La Jolla, at Darmstadt, in New York, Cambridge, and Ann Arbor.
