Hey Exit – Else 2
“So writing is the method of using the word as bait: the word fishing for whatever is not word. When this non-word — between the lines — takes the bait, something has been written. Once whatever is between the lines is caught, the word can be tossed away in relief. But that’s where the analogy ends: the non-word, taking the bait, incorporates it. So what saves you is writing absentmindedly.”
“What I’m writing to you is not for reading — it’s for being.”

Originally beginning as a free improvisation project in 2009, Hey Exit was restarted in 2015 with a focus on songwriting and composition. Led by Brendan Landis, Hey Exit draws on his background in punk, harsh noise, and traditional Japanese music.
