"Wandering man, tapes poet, Radio On co-founder, editor and artistic director of Staaltape and Staalzine as well as the now defunct Porticello Artist Residencies, Rinus Van Alebeek embraces and eludes the world through walkman, dictaphone and elegance of movement.
The Gracious Depression is a midsummer whispering storm in its dissipating stage, just when the downdrafts starts to dominate over the clouds."
