Two blocks west of the Chat, in a teashop called the Jarre de Thé, Case washed down the night’s first pill with a double espresso. It was a flat pink octagon, a potent species of Brazilian dex he bought from one of Zone’s girls.”

It can be said, for me at least, that sampling, looping and re-assembling both found materials and site specific sounds selected for precision of relevance to thee message implications of a piece of music or a transmedia exploration, is an alchemical, even a magical phenomenon. No matter how short, or apparently unrecognizable a “sample” might be in linear time perception, I believe it must, inevitably, contain within it (and accessible through it), the sum total of absolutely everything its original context represented, communicated, or touched in any way; on top of this it must implicitly also include the sum total of every individual in any way connected with its introduction and construction within the original (host) culture, and every subsequent (mutated or engineered) culture it in any way, means or form, has contact with forever (in Past, Present, Future and Quantum time zones).
“Any two particles that have once been in contact will continue to act as though they are informationally connected regardless of their separation in space and time.”

these are some of the last tracks i recorded in the studio; first half of the show is ambient music, the second half is techno (or something similar) plus a remix of Industrial Skies by Walker i made time ago with the Ninja Jamm app
It was only four tracks on the machine, but I was picking up twenty from the extra terrestrial squad.
When I left school there was nothing to do except field work. Hard, hard labour. I didn’t fancy that. So I started playing dominoes. Through dominoes I learned to read the minds of others. This has proved eternally useful to me.
God is black. The black record plastic can prove that to you! Look at the sun when it casts a shadow. That’s the spirit. The spirit is black.

“Si racconta che Domenico Scarlatti abbia preso per tema di una sua fuga il motivo composto dal suo gatto che camminava sul clavicembalo; anche se in questo caso occorrerebbe parlare di fortuito dell’azione piuttosto che di aleatorio della struttura del ritmo. E nessuno può escludere che Henry Bergson ignorasse questo episodio quando ha osservato che gli effetti del caso si notano soprattutto quando questo «si comporta come se avesse una intenzionalità».
Quando si usa il termine «caso» non facciamo altro che esprimere una mancanza di informazioni esplicative che, qualora fossero disponibili, renderebbero prevedibile l’evento, sottraendolo alla indeterminatezza del fortuito e riconsegnandolo alla certezza dell’inevitabilmente necessario.”
“Domenico Scarlatti is said to have taken as the theme of one of his fugues the motif composed by his cat walking on the harpsichord; although in this case it would be necessary to speak of the fortuitous action rather than the randomness of the rhythm structure. And no one can rule out that Henry Bergson ignored this episode when he observed that the effects of the case are most noticeable when it “behaves as if it had intentionality.”
When we use the term “random” we do nothing but express a lack of explanatory information which, if available, would make the event predictable, removing it from the indeterminacy of the fortuitous and returning it to the certainty of the inevitably necessary.”
“As a musician I am interested in the sensual nature of sound, its power of release and change.In my performances throughout the world I try to transmit to the audience the way I am experiencing sound as I hear it and play it in a style that I call deep listening. Deep listening is listening in every possible way to every thing possible to hear no matter what you are doing. Such intense listening includes the sounds of daily life, of nature, of one’s own thoughts as well as musical sounds. Deep listening is my life practice.” Acoustic and Virtual Space as a Dynamic Element of Music
