the plea

what will save us, Jennifer asks, how shall we survive, where can we turn,
what is to become of us, what is our future, what will you see when I die,
what will become of you, what will become of the species, where has our
history gone, what happens to our dust, our molecules, our atoms, what
happens to our forms, our records, our data, our speech, the recordings of
our speech, the preservation of the recordings of our speech, what happens
to the prions and viruses, the phages and the bacteria, the parasites,
what happens to our sun and our planets and our lives, to whom shall we be


We are stardust

'We are stardust' from which everything, all philosophy, proceeds, a
timing and process that is always coming to an end. So we are vast, we are
communal, every atom from another source, another distance, every atom
silent as to history from which we draw only this, that history is silent,
that our micro-histories go against the grain, are retardations, are the
source of pain, of holding back, as if there were beginnings and
demarcations evident in Being, and as if becoming were a universal law. We
are stardust, we have already returned as such; at the edge of the
universe our faces and bodies live and project, towards that Being and
becoming, we are observers of the cinema of disappearance; it is ourselves

project space

thinking about performances, using architectures
and electronics, standing and slow-moving waves,
short-wave radio and medical equipment

playing melodica with reverb with reverb with reverb and pitch shift

yes, short of breath, but then a bit of the baritone
more experimentation, heading towards organ-saxophone
but thinking about shakuhachi which is unfair to both instruments

child companion reason period blessing melody
tiny mournful signal calling in soup of melody
and eate him with great melody. And so when they haue
nor grimmer sound than melody,
