John Coltranes Live in Japan 4-disc set was released in 1991. Fresh out of college, I was diving with abandon into the excitement of free jazz, and the recordings from Coltranes 1966 Japanese tour were more of a treasure trove than I could have hoped for. Compact discs werent new, but they were new enough to me that the thick, plastic, double-hinged jewel box was a chest of gold.

Scale is an idea all of its own. Daredevils is artist, poet, and performer Stephanie Barbers first feature-length film, and this expanded space becomes a repository for ideas for and about art, and for observations on interaction and interrelation. Here, the excitement of ideas, and of seeing, functions like the rising and falling of serotonin levels, moments of ecstasy leading to inevitably painful ends. Moments bend within that split second when happiness turns into melancholy on contact with the intellect.
