An exploration of a psychic aural space just south of our consciousness. That very special location defined as "between the GRASS and where the GRASS is always greener" . . . Borderland . . . plotted by scientific method and the Western white male gaze . . . that ever so elusive place of American media myth." (the artists) A collage that blends stories and found sounds in a contrapuntal assemblage of gender encounters and questions of "otherness." The stories include R. Gordon Wasson's recounting of his first psychotropic mushroom experience with the Mexican-Indian shaman, Maria Sabena, and Rosemarie Waldrop's tale of Washington, D.C., and the sacrifices of younq Aztec virgins. Commissioned by New American Radio.
