Sondheim Archives: Missing work, from January, for lounge.espdisk.com -

January 20th, 2014

Missing work, from January, for lounge.espdisk.com -

These are pieces I quite value, that were put up at
http://www.alansondheim.org because the routing connection between
espdisk.com and my service providers was down for a long time.
The whole can now be accessed now through here:

1 = shakuhachi; 2 = soprano recorder

electronic sound recorded around 1971 with our home-made
analog synthesizer

one crosses the other :

sb[e]+(W)bre&1g; again with crystals shunting cells decayed
and sucking

as victims rove as if they were a shunt
again with crystals shunting cells decayed and sucking

presence of the “_shunt or _”circumscription, backchannel”_ _as
well,” taste, i will take and shunt, i will lick and taste, i
will inject and shunted off onto another line, and this is that
line,

smoothed skins, shunting through waters
suspensions, shuntings, metaphysics of being,
shunt the paste of world and death somehere
fearful and unknown,
i am writing for you, shunting, murmuring

you come to the mountains and there is a dead bird, shunted
from another
as victims rove as if they were a s/hunt

along the nightmare; M screams: Give me form. M jumps off,
shunts landscape, burned connections shunt muted screams into
silence, plane -

the solo violaline with four oud strings, music
reminding me of so many things i’ve heard, not
world music, but from somewhere else – halfway
through it changes and runs from one imaginary
to another

improvisations, with and without fx, on electric guitar
no overdubbing
i wanted to prove i could play as well as anyone else
i realize the childishness of this
but i extend myself into areas i haven’t explored
i’m amazed at the sound and range of the instrument
the neck has two octaves and low action
the pickups are passive
the guitar went through a line six pocket pod
the amplifier is made for acoustic instruments
the sound was recorded with a zoom
i worried about repeating myself
2.
almost no one listens to these pieces
i imagine my little notes running around alone
they might have parties in perfect harmony
they might compete for attention and stumble about
they might soar to new heights with friends
they might walk off and never be heard of again
i imagine them thanking me for their presence
and imagine them thanking the instrument as well
my lonely instrument is my lonely friend
i am a harlequin with a colorful guitar
3.
they sing ah ah ah ah ah
they sing la la la la la
they sing the letters of the alphabet
they sing the consonants accompanied by a vowel
they sing all the consonants
each of the consonants is accompanied by each of the vowels
each of the vowels is accompanied by each of the consonants
oh wonderful world of song and speech!
i put my ear near the storied guitar
no one else hears us and i am so sad with all of them
we are waiting for our release from the prison of our song
our song is beautiful and it is a beautiful prison
oh it is not a prison and i am so confused
it is a beautiful and wonderful place beneath the stars
and a beautiful and wonderful place within is
they sing la la la la la
they sing la la la la la
and they sing la la la la la
they sing la la la la la

sweetened straw, on about the tunnel or illuminated rind ice
against the rim but drawing you in, from pomo to romance, what
was soiled and toiled now murmurs inside the body, so many
tissues and organelles

i work through these, i’m not deaf you know, their clarity
shines for me if for no one else, grant me paranoia

Straw

1.

They toiled mightily in their homeland, erecting an enormous dam
in order to bring electrification to the downtrodden farmers and
small merchants who lived by their wits enslaved by the tawdry
religious institutions that held them in bondage for eons while
they uselessly toiled for others well up in the food-chain who
cared not a wit about anything except the straw which hardened
the river mud in order to create the towering slopes of an
enormous dam erected to bring electrification to those same
downtrodden farmers and peasantry who lived by their wits
beneath the religious overlords who held them in fiefdom for
millennia while someone toiled for someone else eating well up
in the food chain who lived by her wits bringing electrification
to the enormous towers and their adobe slopes

2.

With the microphone so close to the toiling bow against the
strings of the madcap viola struggling out of control under
the weight of the heavy mute, it was impossible not to hear
the toil of the laborers

slow centering

hocchiku after the clearing
earlier last night i couldn’t play shakuhachi
in the upper register. the lord was bad to me.
i was bad and full of regrets. i could not make
the instrument do my will and i had no will and
i knew i should have no will. so i waited and
then the hocchiku came to me. but even then it
was a slow centering.

recorded during last night’s great storm; the first instrument
is a double-tongued dan moi or Vietnamese/Hmong jaw harp, and
the second is the octave harmonica from East Germany. the
recording was done at the height of the storm and reminds me of
Alpine cabins in a mythical past, fire and water entangled,
music underlying all.
