246(i) an artistic migration / concept :
Darwinism is not only an ugly model for ethics and evolution, it's
horrendous etiquette at any cultural event , not to mention, utterly
worthless for making friends ... or MUSIC ! And yet as archaic science-cum-
capitalist manifesto it is allowed to permeate our society and dissect our humanity at every turn.

That's why the team of musicians, DJs, and Soundlab artists at CELLSPACE
have decided it's a critical moment in our evolution to re-institute the
language(s) of art and music as a primary mode of human interaction and global relations.

246 is the number often told in the legend of how many diverse indigenous
tribes lived in sustainable harmony together in the (SF)
bay area before the arrival of western borders.
(i) = indigenous = independent = interconnected = the infinite mix = no human is illegal !
