Just as the seeds of a dandelion, a symbol attached to childhood innocence and play, are carried to destinations unknown, Dandelion comments on how the standard repertoire of violinist Andie Tanning Springer's youth influences her contemporary musicality that is strongly focused on the experimental and avant-garde. The prepared electronics sample extracted audio from home videos of Springer's childhood recitals. The manipulated video is prepared by artist Nikolai Antonie.
