Introductory Preface and Postface, or Open Bracketing of the W/Hole

[This is my introductory postface or preface to my forthcoming WVU book;
it's a fairly good explanation of my essay-work I think. Offered with
permission.]

The process used to produce this book has been one of continuous
negotiation over pieces, which are broken remnants of a text that might
go on indefinitely, if I did. I would say this about the individual
sections -

1 that each begins, for me, from ground zero, both in the sense of
catastrophe, and without regard to presuppositions; in other words, each
sketches out a terrain which, phenomenologically, is close to the
scratching-out of inscription against the flesh and abjection of the body.

At Interrupt 2 and the noise thereafter

Chris Funkhouser, flute

Alan Sondheim, harmonic minor and valveless chromatic harmonicas

this was the first time we played together with flute and harmonica, that
is, and I've been noticing, having returned fromInterrupt 2, that my
typing has somehow goe from bad to worse, and I;m wondering if this is
early onset dementiia or an issue of stres; certainly the keyboards
haven't changed over the past fourdays, but the typing has turned to what
might be considered an almost chidish scrwal. sooner or later I'll just be
able to communicate with music, if that. in the mentaime I was interviewed

Saddening

Being at the beginning of the Interrupt 2 event at Brown
University, I am realizing how sad letters are, and I
play this tune to show that.

urban deterioration

http://www.alansondheim.org/blocknoise.mp3

we now have a sound meter documenting the construction
... noise from the arena. we're way over par. blocknoise
presents the noise from various distances; the c-reading
is low-noise. my nerves are shot; I'm seeing a doctor
for anti-anxiety and sleeping pills, and a pulmonologist
to try and figure out what to do about my deteriorating
breathing.
