Enters is a project comprising Alexei Perry Cox, Jacob Wren and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, in which narrative texts and sonic landscapes encounter ephemerality and negotiate its complications. As an act of both erasure and invention, it becomes its own source of the imaginative act of regeneration each time it is performed. Some gestures feel static and retrievable in both the recitations and the music but the recurrent theme is change itself.
