This is all about widening the scope, spirituality and against powerlessness.

Anticyclical Flower // Basic Things

Thanksgiving, saffron crocus. You blossom in autumn, are green during winter and you dry out in spring. You grow on my balcony. Thanks for your pistils. Would you like to become my godplant?

The Elephant In The Room // text ahead

Tiger in the morning
Eat raw meat
Because he can’t cook

Because, because
Because, because
Because, because

Contemplation kill causes

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

Let’s think of another way
To leave or to stay
To love and to pray
[repeat 4 to 6 times]

. . . [intermezzo] . . .

I think it is ok
To stay or to leave
To give and to receive
[repeat]

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

Bamboo Session: DOUCEMENT, CAPITAINE

In the Bamboo Session we explored various techniques for fusing electronic and acoustic layers. The present director’s cut consists of all three takes we recorded. “Doucement, Capitaine” is an incantation to carefully deal with power.

Thoughts on “Bitches Brew”

This is a recovery track for Fatima. (If it is too exciting for you: listen to it later.)
(Sometimes things have to be in disorder to find into a new order. Provisorisch. Smartass.)
If you listen to the track on the computer speakers you probably will not hear the beat.
