some things on the music */[...]/*

i or so

avoidance of noise ,then how to schedule fury or furious ,how to
subtend silence */how to breathe ,how to subtend breathing/*

i don't want this thinking: that this is exploring instrument,
instrumentality ,nor a field ,subtended by fingers or mouth ,no
more than body

but the joist of particle physics ,muons on a sense of virtual
particles on another

(a b) (a, b) (a / b) (a : b) (a | b) (a f(a, b) b)

it is all resonance ,surprising ,metallic overtones ,ringing: i
remember just several sounds slowed into what seemed right even
then

*/thinking among unthinking ,something about emptiness ,but
something about thrust and elimination ,the tube ,the platform/*

foreign names touched by cultural illiteracy ,materials ,soundings,
emptied virtuosities

stringed, it is stringing ,perfect tautness ,resistance of
parallel field ,tension of endpoint separation ,tension of
separation */tension of aspiration ,breath-length ,incomplete
phrasing/*

i do not want to duplicate this ,i do not want to duplicate an
other

*/i wanna be an other ,i dont wanna be an other other ,i wanna
be hir ,i wanna be hir breathe/*

something informing ,hypnagogic as if you might dream this ,an
other or dream an other this */i wanna breathe hir/*

but not tiring ,tirade ,more of a space of a sounding or what
might be 'some of a sound' */i dont wanna tirade ,now too much
violence everywhere, wanna something else/*

of mewling ,howling ,whimpering ,murmuring ,seething ,then this amazing
release

neither to be where you have been nor will have gone there ,here is
one alone ,playing music ,playing music together

tending the wood ,nylon ,skin ,metal ,plastic ,catgut ,horsehair
,wax, bamboo ,bone ,or tending the wires */tending the reed ,the
silk ,sub-tending the air within ,thinned line among these/*

the absence of metaphor ,wires ,no paralleling ,the difficulty
of absence ,no equivalence ,no identity ,just as everything else is,
or remains ,inert

sound of the obdurate ,sound of the inert

ii or so

learning to play these ,evenings or nights' mornings ,but with
all respect ,coaxing ,no world music ,no world but what ,are we
brought, to */,but what world has brought us/*

here's an idea ,so i'll do it ,hear what happens ,when new ,then
so it is brought */,then so it is given/*

always writing in silence ,always playing in silence ,playing
silence, listening silence ,enormous roiling ,slow extinction of
the planet, these last sounds ,instrument making ,them

she got up from the music ,he got down to the music,
he got up from the music ,she got down to the music

,collide

unknown ,everywhere i look ,unknown

iii or so

i'm not giving you what you want ,that is ,an entry into this
sound, some of an anecdote ,or at the very least, an explanation
,as in, 'you owe me an explanation' */or you owe me nothing ,or
you begin ,just now ,to owe everything ,you owe nothing to me/*

i wouldn't know how to begin ,perhaps in eternal sorrow
,mourning, every minute of the life ,or the slightest peaks of
joy ,or stories about failure quantum-tunneled into music of
unutterable beauty ,or musics

or something about how these instruments came about ,what do i

it is more you want ,more you ever want ,this savagery ,this
lack of mine ,of yours ,one more word ,phrase ,sound or tune
