NO: In uncertain times, what do we have left to rely on? NEW: Where to discover a philosophy/ritual/mantra?

The MP3 freed us from the physical; vinyl, tape, CD. The Shuffle impacted our musical experience; no returning to the tyranny of the tracklist. The Search liberates forced connections hidden within titles, generating its own poetry.

This is the new concrete order of a manifesto for: NOW.

A method that can be endlessly reapplied and customised for every occasion. 6,566 titles currently in my i-Tunes library and counting... 2012
