Don Quixote in a strange land, in which he may not be harmless. A metaphor has wandered into the future.
My Baby - Janis Joplin [from Pearl]
Deep feedback growlings in the lower strings.
Gimme Danger - The Stooges [from Metallic 'KO]
An altar call.
Advice from Christmas Past - Dead Kennedys [from Plastic Surgery Disasters / In God We Trust Inc.]
The second page of this poem didn't make it, never had a chance.

Banned Rehearsal 65 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Doug Henderson, Neal Kosály-Meyer [February 1986]
Doug Henderson was in town touring with Resistance, so he sat in. A feedback box is created, becoming a limiter, a cage around everything, inescapable, remanding agency, active global control. Into the warzone. Electric Garbage brings us down to dreamstate. Never is not something going on. There's a story about that one.
Lithium - Nirvana [from Nevermind]
Guess which song just now, as I blog, came up in the big random mix of everything. Yep. Spooky. The end is not its beginning nor its beginning its end, rather it sets up a time loop in which one is always.
Banned Rehearsal 428 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer, Anna S [July 1996]
Somewhere between a simultaneity and a timbre, we construct a music around the soundsystem that will play it back. Wild Thing psychedelic. A break in the middle, a long silence that wakes up on the weird side, in a loud mood. Direct to cassette mastering.

Banned Rehearsal 615 - Isaac E, John E, Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Isabel K, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer [August 2001]
Yet another fabulous group performance of my evolving score "Work Architecture Unity And The" begins this, with infant Isabel providing perfect babbling. Eventually the clowns arrive (as threatened). Thickness ensues, relaxes into play of aloof o'er-arch. Try again. Full Stop.
High and Inside - Keith Eisenbrey - Keith Eisenbrey [recorded live in Snohomish, October 2010]
I still think of this as being a fairly recent piece of mine, though it's now over 11. A rock solid thought, in spite of its outdated minimalism.

Faster/Still - Paul Kikuchi [from Portable Sanctuary Vol. 1]
Strikes upon the bellgong are not the point of the sound, but are nudges to their singing pitch bend. A delicate distant rustle more and more nearly withdraws: come in, come in, come in, come in, come in. Was that what about it was?
Banned Telepath 44 Seattle - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Steve Kennedy, Neal Kosály-Meyer [February 2016]
Each agenda a micro-layer revolving cyclic or shifting big-cyclic-like. Lots of no solos at all. (nearly if not perfect).
In Session at the Tintinabulary
September 4, 2017Gradus 320 - Neal Kosály-Meyer
Register grouping reinforced by pattern/figuration rhythmic/dynamic composition. Each rung is a key, making possible the notion of transfiguration into the wildly distant.
