Concealed voices. Playing the role of the impersonator revealing six, seven , eight different personas; all minimal talents…but, highly differentiated.

This is from Yesterday….smooth and tactile. Convey falsehood, followed by conveyed truth. Judge, but be simultaneously frightened. Sing an inquiry of decree.

Like an angelic doctor from the office of compline.


Performance Notes cont. Creased and defrocked…a gaggle of priests, prostates on the wall, reciting Balboaic psalms to the pulpits of wicked sins; benedictions; …move the moment of ineffable splendor. Tune and be tuned as to your higher rattling; spew forth the beauty of monody and melody…

From the bold tripod, the bastion of strength, the vessel of sanctity and the canacle of wisdom, diminish your sonic permutations to a fragile spineless waif. Only to rebirth and shout to finish the passage.

With mystic ardor and strong pangs of uneasiness. Prayer like. Pray. Modulating murmurs lending to squelched , somber tones of undeterminable origin.

Embryonic, peaceful and dreamlike. An age when photography was favored in art. e S t i m m e

4 As a n y g o o d Fl uffer, pretend to perform in a tolling, loud din of disruption. Precise diction. Fr e e to r e i n ve n t and translate.

Th e m e d i u m , th e cavalo is penetrated by a weight training, tummystick; moaning, spinning, tw i r l i n g vo i ce s…and silence pervades.

Or d e r l y a r ti cu l ation; measured with a sense of great cadence. Produced with a divine i n h a l a ti o n a n d e xhalation like anxious breathing or the action of a bellows.

A deep breath…hold as long as possible…release a long luminous hiss of material residue. Chant and speak, waiting in ambush.

Sa ta n i c. Fr a u d u lent…migrating to sounds of eating and digestion in some form of druidic r i te . Th r e e d i sti nct voices occur in this passage, O ctavious, Mortacai and Beliverimer; all b r a n d s o f vo i ce , defined and delivered. You create these roles.

L i a ’s a d ve n tu r e with metals, metallaphones, and metallic resonances replicated and defined b y vo i ce a n d g e sture. En a cti n g a ch e mical wedding, sounds of faint black lead, cobalt blue distillations, rogue co p p e r a b l u ti o n s, lavender liquefactions…the sounds; the phonera; a stereoscopic orgy of m e n a g e r i e - l i ke performance heard only once; and forever forgotten. By relaxing the vocal co r d s, o b ta i n “ undertones” or “subtones,” which are produced an inverse overtone series. Al th o u g h th e o ct ave below is the most frequently used undertone, a twelfth below, and other l o w e r u n d e r to n es are also possible. In a r o a r i n g vo i ce: nerves, muscles, and twitches; a belly full on nano-metaphorical sounds e n a cte d i n th e body; eyes, spleens, penises and pancreases all capable of producing so n o r i fi c p h e n o mena; to be produced and not replicated in this passage.


Performance Notes cont. Sq u e e ze yo u r e ar with extreme and absurd pressure. Hold and continue pressure. Between o n e w a ve o f p a i n and the next, express your pain through sound; you have to count, because a s th e i n te r va l grows shorter , the moment approaches …

...

So u n d s a n d fr a gments of speech burst the banks of consciousness, washed away inhibitions a n d r o u ti n e s, brought about by nostalgia and fresh interests now suddenly vital and i r r e p l a ce a b l e , n ot unlike those of passionate lovemaking.

D r i ve u s to th e safe shores of various possible booms, in the discourse of time, as a shapeless m a ss w h o a n ti ci pated the great seducers of political power.

It i s m a d d e n i n g the way just the right amount of pastiche and exaggeration…hoses upon us a n d a fi n e ca ke topped by Christian martyrs who acquiesce in worship of grainy, waxing, h o w l - h o - h o w l i n g tones of labor and lust.

Tr u m p e ti n g i n a confluence of harmony and ecstasy…completely harmonic…soft; mutes; e ve n tu a l ca l m .

Rattling, crowing, keening being the outcome: believe in not an ideology, but an idiotology of cinemas of sounds…you are to replicate in perfect testimony…Oh, the howling, cracking, the putrid, skunky like bashing of perfect fifths. Sounds as such demoralized and debunked.
