"Signs operate in different ways on multiple levels. A sign is anything that stands for something to somebody. Signs can be literal. They can play off each other. They can stand for things they aren’t. And they can take on a life of their own. Sometimes the term ‘meme’ is synonymous with ‘sign’. So
Memetica Ecologica is a kind of Empire of Signs."

"Sound Experience, Feeling Sound: Alan Nakagawa and the Point Of Turn Project"
by Benjamin Bennett-Carpenter
"What’s happened with people and religion in America (and elsewhere)? What’s going on these days? What’s essential within the midst of things? What’s the future look like for living communities? In Point of Turn, Nakagawa offers listeners a portal into a powerful, encompassing soundscape that incorporates simple reportage of individual testimonies within a complex, multilayered sound experience that accumulates, circles around, and persistently lingers on in mind."
