Saddening

http://www.alansondheim.org/saddening.mp3

Being at the beginning of the Interrupt 2 event at Brown
University, I am realizing how sad letters are, and I
play this tune to show that.

urban deterioration

http://www.alansondheim.org/blocknoise.mp3

we now have a sound meter documenting the construction
... noise from the arena. we're way over par. blocknoise
presents the noise from various distances; the c-reading
is low-noise. my nerves are shot; I'm seeing a doctor
for anti-anxiety and sleeping pills, and a pulmonologist
to try and figure out what to do about my deteriorating
breathing.

This is the sound I've been searching for recently - exoplanet

sadly, then walking on exoplanets, an event

 

playing melodica

http://www.alansondheim.org/melodica1.mp3 with reverb
http://www.alansondheim.org/melodica2.mp3 with reverb
http://www.alansondheim.org/melodica3.mp3 with reverb and pitch shift

yes, short of breath, but then a bit of the baritone
more experimentation, heading towards organ-saxophone
but thinking about shakuhachi which is unfair to both instruments

child companion reason period blessing melody
tiny mournful signal calling in soup of melody
and eate him with great melody. And so when they haue
nor grimmer sound than melody,

broken conversation

----------------------------= YTalk version 3.3.0
=----------------------------- therefore something should come together
between the two bodies separated by a serrated division, vertebra one
among other. pain is this logging-out, is the collapse of the backbone,
the melting or melding of the body as it begins to disappear.the body's
not here either, the body is a square, is a playing-field, the body is a
holding-pen.the i is a stream of i's, of eyes, these appear as if it were,
but just imminent, as if just momentary, just for a minute.drying, in
other words a stain or residue, we can say a conversation is a drying, a
drying-out.in other words, you're saying this is dust, this is red dust,

 

B-field

http://www.alansondheim.org/vlfeye3.mp3
http://www.alansondheim.org/vlfeye4.mp3

filtered B-field VLF recordings with loop antenna, outside
Eyebeam on West 21st Street. most of what you hear is 60-cycle
that's so strong it won't filter out; on occasion, in vlfeye2
and 4 for example, other signals seem to come through.

VLF is always mysterious, nothing more so than B-field!

we're all being magnetized, hopefully irregularly!
