  • "Om Compound Codex 01"--Page 3.
  • "This is the first in a series of codices and a guide to an OM Compound. An OM (or opera-masquerade) is our interdisciplinary and collaborative performance system, which includes songs, poems, choreography, symbolic actions, photographs, and installations. The works have been presented in galleries, clubs, universities, theaters and online. Each OM compound contains one or more 'story complexes' built on foundational myths, source texts, and documentary and autobiographical components. The Four Electric Ghosts codex establishes the Ani Story Complex"--Page 3.
  • "Parts of this work have been presented at Cal Arts, Project Row Houses, The Kitchen, and the Krannert Art Museum, and Princeton University"--Page 3.
  • Includes "About the Artists" (Page 4).
