When musician D.W. Burnam reads or listens to lyrics, he thinks of space. When Seattle artist Gretchen Bennett reads or listens to lyrics, words emerge that relate to specific moments in time. During this two-hour project, Burnam and Bennett will lead participants in writing in reaction to sound, examining the influence of songs on the verbal formulation of personal experiences.
