Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
Gertrude Stein

In generally the idea of the Rose is about little things — empty forms which connected only by their existence inside thyself; things are what they are. There are a certain quantity of little objects and instruments (toy piano, harmonica, pure tone generator, mechanical keyboard, radio, clockwork and hand cranked music box movements, small sticky tape, tuning fork) and two performers who are in dialogue with these things.
