All timing all the time Fate News is poetry in the crosshairs of action (kairos) and clock time (chronos). With a topical setlist in four sections, "Local," "On-Going," "Stay Songs," and "Harmolodics," Fate News relentlessly pierces the surface of lyric gesture. Its osmotic exchanges and searching encounters vibrate with the clarity of fiercely delicate shouts and murmurs, undertones and overtones. The vision of "Mount Fiasco" is on fire.
