[ mood | contemplative ]
[ music | william basinski – disintegration loops ]

i like the sound of old movie soundtracks
the warped sounds
belonging to some warped images that i’ll never see
some overpaid studio composer was paid to create a musical representation of some plot or narrative
time, however, has turned his music into a new piece
with new feelings and connotations

there is no art that is static in time
that does not degrade
the passage of time defines music
without a definition of a relative schedule of musical events
a piece becomes incoherent
without the familiar trappings of melody and rythm
the music becomes noise
sounds
breaking the static with a new static
the frequencies blurred into each other
i heard one sound
it was black and it was white
it was useless

now i have muscles in my face
now i have lungs for the race
