In September 2010 artists and musicians Jacob Ciocci and David Wightman (aka Extreme Animals) embarked up0n their 8th tour of the United States, premiering 3 new videos and 2 new performances at venues ranging from Universities to Media Festivals to DIY spaces. Continuing their ongoing investigation into the relationship between the banal and the trancendent, the works in "Music Is A Question . . ." combine original video footage with footage sourced from VHS tapes and the internet into a bewildering maelstrom of contemporary American pathos. Rejecting the distinction between the producer and the consumer, or the original and the derivative, their videos and performances attempt to blur boundaries between the authentic and the trite or the liberating and the imprisoning.  How are tweens using YouTube and how is YouTube using tweens?
