Notes about the text:
The title of the piece is borrowed from the third book of G.I. Gurdjief's trilogy: All and Everything.
Gurjief's discussion of the philosophy pertaining to the question of what is 'I' is included in the book In Search of Miraculous, penned by his student, Russian esotericist, P.D. Ouspensky.
The piece draws a paragraph from the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus -- a cryptic text about first matter (prima materia) in Hermetic knowledge. Although the authorship of the text is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus (in English 'Thrice-Greatest Hermes') from Hellenistic Egypt, the definite author of the Emerald Tablet is unknown. The short paragraph used here is from the version by a French alchemist known as Fulcanelli, which states: 'That which is below is like that which is on high, and that which is on high is like that which is below; by these things are made the miracles of one thing.'

"Trinity Laban Fourth Plinth Performance":
Musicians from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance assemble to create a performance event, inspired by ICA's Fourth Plinth: Contemporary Monument exhibition, challenging the conventions of the classical music concert and exploring the possibilities of performance within a contemporary gallery setting. Examining what being put on an empty plinth means, this performance explores how the context in which something is presented can alter our perception of it. In a symbiotic relationship with the artworks exhibited, the performers will showcase a mixture of performance art and sound, inviting members of the public to approach them and the exhibits and to claim their own space alongside them.
