  Cave of the Winds (1978) RUSSELL PECK “In the Cave there is no sunlight. Everyone has lost sight, wearing sunglasses over their atrophied eyes. Plants abound in the Cave, nourished by vapors and black light. The musicians of the Cave never read music. How could they? All music is by feel. No one is watching. No inhibitions. Everyone moves to the music, ensembles in unison. The Cave is located on a Sethian node three miles below the Earth’s crust, underneath a cornfield in DeKalb, Illinois. The rock walls ring to one unchanging pulse, upon which all the cave dwellers build their spontaneous symphonies.” Ă‘Russell Peck
