# HERE, ELSEWHERE:
It is twenty thousand years in the future and our signals have been received, but it is too late for life on Earth. The hyper-dimensional crystals have arrived to a blasted wasteland. They can see the beauty in our ruins, and something of themselves in our striving. They must first clear away these desiccated remains, and send some of it to their museum. They reconstruct this planet in their own image and restore a harmonious balance.

NOVELLER
is the solo electric guitar project of Brooklyn-based composer and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. Handling the guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it’s housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer. http://www.sarahlipstate.com

DAVID LOBSER
is a digital artist based in Brooklyn NY. He is interested in the tensions between simulation and life and the increasingly blurry boundaries between the two.
