"can we see it without words? do words block the view? if words are the view, what lies beyond, behind? behind beyond // what to write in, on. what? and // in what language? // not the mother tongue, but    the other tongue" Pedro Rivadeneira "Corporalmente" - Open Space Magazine Issue 11 Fall 2009

Luigi Dallapiccola
Concerto per la notte di Natale dell'anno - Luigi Dallapiccola - Philadelphia Composer's Forum, Joel Thome, Valarie Lamoree

delicate tracing 
dove tails

joined by the repetition of a curve
so that each moment glows or burns

distance or undistance
deep space behind a stone wall of voice

It Will Stand - The Showmen [collected from Dave Marsh's Heart of Rock & Soul]

Outing the trope of genre promotion (rock and roll will live forever) as an affirmation of the audience (you will live forever). It is essentially an altar call.

Cup of Faith / Beaudoin Quadrille - Fidel Martin [from The Art of Field Recording Vol. 1]

The ornaments on this (a fiddle tune) are touched lightly, articulate feathers on a muscular frame.

Birds of a Feather - Paul Revere and The Raiders [from The Legend of Paul Revere]

Trying for a Sonny and Cher sound? Captain and Tenille? (of which, by the way, I saw an album in the rack at Value Village this morning).

Stevie Nicks
New York State of Mind - Billy Joel [from The Essential Billy Joel]

Oops. Billy forgot to attach a song to this performance.

Edge of Seventeen (live) - Stevie Nicks [collected from Dave Marsh's Heart of Rock & Soul]

The bass player makes this song ecstatic, accenting from the hip.

312 Bus Chain Song 161209 - Keith Eisenbrey

Yesterday morning there was a wee bit of snow on the ground so the buses had their tire chains on. They must be good for exactly one trip, because they started to come loose as soon as we got on the freeway. I was sitting there wishing I had brought my zoom with me to record the WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM when I remembered that my phone could record audio. The result is 6 minutes of rhythm as I desire it. Enjoy!
