30 Samples for Orchestra
audioart toy

a treatise postpolitic

All heard noise the very first time.  Opinion, judgment & taste precede
recognition & observation, so all are taught that hearing is a
superficial mannerism, like eating temporarily resolves the pang of

All hear noise as environmental phenomena, a parachute of sonorities has
created all under greenhouse conditions, spawning a head of white-noise,
from infancy to intellectual & physical extension.  All noisy stimulants
have been reduced to the mental furniture of a many layered floor plan. 
They are continuously arranged & rearranged in obliquely, but unthought
out schema, so as to minimize their/its intrusion upon everyday.

NOISY is a four letter word & all must  all be made to feel guilt for
performing amid its debacle.  All's perspective discourse excludes noisy
philosophy.  Noisy memory cultivates the Babylonian anti-spectacle of
bygone millennium.

"Noise courts distrust & friction, behavioral schizophrenia & irrational
haste."  The most unwanted byproduct of population is noise.  Its want &
utility have imploded within its availability.  That noise is a weed to
be plowed under, for hope of a flower later, that a planet so wealthy
with a resource that is pungent with chaotic bits of info could
rhetorically sacrifice it to the distant surroundings, to the recent
past.  Noise is a food like oxygen, or is a piece of information like
the mail, or an emotional gamut such as crying or fucking.

Noise has entered our waking conscience, forcefully & can not be
relinquished to the un/sub conscience.  There lies within noise a manner
of empowerization that is both organic & suggestive.  By an external
manipulation of erotic desirability, by a concentrated rehearsal of
memory, of the most complete & instantaneous global recollection.  Noise
constitutes all that remains undigested, confused & in opposition.  At
the beginning of the 2nd millennium the properties of noise include as
its subset consonance & rhythm since they are no longer obtainable in
their original purity.

No virgin harmony remains unspoilt by the ravages of industrial
continuity.  Noise is the diamond of the future, mined & recycled for
its luster, for its clues to the nature & construction of infinity. 
Noise reproduces in all directions with nucleic passion, with spidery

The race is paralyzed by volume, loudness, amplitude, shouting,
explosions; every sonic initiative is yet another blur of distortion.
