Stirring from the dreamstate of last year's Afterlife, the ragtag crew of artists and magicians known as Radiant Atmospheres once again rises from the shadowy depths of the Underground with news of a yet-unscene nnatural wonder- a creature made up of the light of the watery void itself- nearly invisible- yet whose revolving multiplicitous eyes capture those of its unsuspecting prey, seizing their imaginations and drawing them near. The Leviathan, the One, the tentacled first of all living things, rises to the surface of the Pliestoscene lake known as the Black Rock Playa, bringing with it the sighing soundtrack of ages past and the watery bones of seafaring dreams.
