the sorrow of music

the sorrow of music or
the sadness of the murmuring of objects or
the memory and living memories among us or

the transitional object of the musical instrument

the instrument is the passing/passage/paysage of notes,
notations, language; the instrument is a physical object, played
by others before me, and, through stewardship, played by others
after me.

thus there are always issues of tending, and issues of
setting-up, bringing sound out of wood, bone, leather, bamboo,
to the fullest, to the fullness of the sound, and the slowness
and urgency of this setup -

thus the transitional object, neither here nor there, neither
object of or from the body, nor object disparate, separate,
separated -

what is passed on, after death or through tending towards the
gift, is organic, is organism, is world, is worlding, both
through appearance and the caressing of hands, fingers, mouths,
arms, drawing out the inhabitant, habitus, of the instrument,
drawing always closer to the breathing of death, to the
passing-on of instrument and music, to our passing on -

what leaves me, leaves me well, circulation towards a new home,
inhabitant there, something forever barred from me, the tragedy
of the gift, of the release, of the relinquishment, of what i
shall never hear, of what for me shall remain unheard,
stewardship fading away, tending become a memory, a prayer,
supplication -

always with an instrument, this phrase: so that others


now, what is drawing forth, by night or by day, by twilight or
the memory of twilight, what is, what would have been


my breathing, the blood in my skin, thus -

repetition: the USE of letters, the reversal of letters. then
maybe do something then do the reversal again. make sure you
don't end up anywhere near the same place. then think about
lines in elliptic geometry and where you would put the
separations. and make sure the separations are all within the
same homily.

the repetition is within the same homily. the homily sends
{A}-->0. it is always the same. it is always the same power. the
power of one is the power.

the power of two runs like the arctic fox, the fox in the
arctic. the power of two is the not of the borromeans.

death is a repetition. death is the only repetition. death is
the repetition of zero. it endeth and endeth there. the end
theneth come. the end bring the end of alleth values. we shall
arrive dissolved at the gateth of paradise. we shall be spaceth
we shall be timeth. we shall arriveth. we shall never knoweth.
we shall not knoweth. that is the repetition. that is the
repetition of the repetition. that is the repetition of the

1. then that is the repetition. then that is the repetition of
the repetition.

0. then that is the repetition. then that is the repetition of
the repetition.

making dew

bricolage 4-string instrument found discarded on the
lower east side delivered to Stephen Dydo by a friend,
because it's Chinese and fretless, but so poorly made,
hardly playable, so I did the following, dreaming of
Johnstown and a new otherwise piece called For the jump rhythm


for Stephen Dydo
for Azure Carter
for Stephen Holtje
for Ellen Zweig
for Michael Metz
for Nancy Haynes
for Jason Weiss
for Susan Altabet
for Mitchell Clark
for Chris Diasparra
for Bernard Stollman
for Perry Yung
for Monty Levenson

.. . but this isn't the piece; the piece involves hundreds,
thousands of Fors, and the whose name might I spell wrong,
who might be forgotten, who should be definitely included,
who left behind, who becomes resentful, who becomes grateful,
who stops speaking to me, who begins, . ..

. perhaps not a good idea to do this piece, perhaps to do
something else, full of infinite gratitude towards friends
and yes, even enemies, and the forgotten .. .

the jump rhythm bricolage ferocity takes over, something in
the distance humming, Tibetan, the Qin Society, guqin, China,
Chinese, Buddhism, Tsongkhapa, free jazz, ESP, backroom
gardens, 1000 Character Essay, cd production, shakuhachi
restoration, Chinese television characters, flute, viola,
