Soon, I am hoping to figure out how to post sound clips here. In the meantime, here is a game:

AQUARIUS: I actually kind of hope that your brain is in major overload right now. I hope that you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the new information you’ve absorbed, and that your imagination is a blur of wheels within wheels within wheels spinning at top speeds. In fact I’ll go so far as to say that if this is the case, you’re definitely on the right track. You’re doing what’s necessary to prepare for rebuilding your foundation in May. And if for some reason there are no wheels within wheels within wheels spinning at top speeds — if your mind is as empty and clear as a cloudless blue sky in Montana — then you’re probably doing something wrong. So get out there and start stuffing it with new ideas, radical theories, crazy speculations, wild guesses, and raw perceptions.

Dear Mary Rowlandson, Andreas Vesalius, & Emily Dickinson

It’s lyricism. Because a lyric movement always attracts and repels its characters–anonymous–in their disappearance as well as their presence. And they can be named within the text, named subjectively, objectively, for these characters sometimes become real characters. For instance I wrote a text “…Where the forest is darker” when my father died. But I don’t articulate any form of the word father and I never articulate the word mother, my mother who was so present at the death of my father. So in fact even in the most extreme situations, like death, like a theme of death, like the death theme, the character remains anonymous. There is, let me say, affectivity that causes the anonymity to come and screen an emotion or transgression. –Anne-Marie Albiach
