Preface

"Whereas in everyday speech we tend to use words and syntax more than we savor them, passing through language in order to communicate or glean a message, when w listen to music we tend to attend differently: individual moments, and successions and interactions among these moments, are what music is, they are why we listen."
- Dora A. Hanninen "Words, Musical Organization, and Boretz's 'Thesis'" Open Space Magazine issue 19/20 fall 2015/spring 2016

die drei zum felsen auch die jungfrau sprach
in dem soll herz wird munter er sterben

the numbers reduced irretrievably
to little dots that flash
