DOOM is our offering of rhythms, textures, and ways of being-with, together. Even as apocalypses bloom around us, we dance non-stop and launch into a doom-metal concert, howling our approach to the end of the world — a collective grieving and celebration in the face of oncoming doom. We see, feel, and hear the slow changes of an ending world, and yet we propose a non-fatalistic way of attending to each other with care, imagining alternatives to the end-of-days scenario.
