Poetry. "CANT is an evocative soundscape of verbal cues that propose ways to go beyond a semiotic account of phenomena. This immersive score brings into existence sustained listening zones where diachronic difference and sonic concatenation are finely tuned to the subtlest frequencies. David James Miller's arrangement of tone clusters evokes auditory dimensions that hover between the specifics of attention and formless, unvectored coming into being—through subliminal pulsation, pitch and interval and also bountiful silence. CANT is an infinitely beautiful field recording of living impressions as well as an auditory response to the history of sound and sense-making. Aurality involves the whole body and the total ecology. The experience of engaging CANT is about engaging the bountiful ambience of occurrence—presencing with rapt attention, open to wonder."—Brenda Iijima
