On September 10th 2011, The Temple in conjunction with Death Star held 9.10.11. Unspoken,
     a free of speech performance event. Eight male artists and one male dog presented visual and sound
     works united by a common interest in meditation practices, planetary alignments and the mysteries of
     human consciousnesses. The humans that attended remained silent for the entire duration of the event.
Daniel-Kayne and John Pitale welcomed the audience with The Seduction of  Toth. 
Part 1 of an  improvised  sound and vibrations piece, employing gongs and other instruments arranged in an elaborate installation.

by writing them on his body.

For a performance entitled 00:11:11:00.A, I gave fruits to our human audience that represented the nine planets in our solar system, then became possessed by  a death star and traveled at slow shutter speed around the space attempting to steal their planets. I took a bite  off Venus, I kidnapped Mercury and pulverized Saturn.The rest of the planets were kept safe by the humans. The performance lasted 11 minutes and 11 seconds.

Jonathan Jindra’s contribution for the event was an experimental short film entitled Human Devices.

Daniel-Kayne and John Pitale finalized the event by gradually inducing the attending humans into a state of meditation with Tongues of Trinity, for which Baltazar Canales joined them.
