"Amazon is not just a forest"

my _cosmic _music of the spheres__
3 vlf compositions
irvine regional park, california
modification with notch filters and chorus in cooledit
1930 regal mandolin with four low-tuned bazouki strings
sony minidisk and sony minidv video recorders
light drizzle and clouded over, cool
input directly from the vlf receiver
loosely coupled antenna in dried creekbed
visible at jpegs
although this was a fairly isolated area, the hum was enormous
there were powerlines everywhere
these are inescapable in southern california
in relation to analog / digital
the sounds are combinations of filters/effects/solarparticles/'music'
the electrospherical local membrane is altered by metal strings
these interact with the antenna field coupling and uncoupling
as performer/technician, i was not grounded, due to the rocky creekbed
there were ravens in the area
the usual spherics/spikes are audible in a number of instances
i think of this as my _cosmic swirl_
we interact everyday with electromagnetic fields of varying strength
we are penetrated by these fields
this is my _cosmic ode_ to the wondrous fields around us
this is truly my _cosmic _music of the spheres__

THE SOULS OF CYBERFOLK: Posthumanism as Vernacular Theory
Thomas Foster
University of Minnesota Press | 392 pages | 2005
ISBN 0-8166-3405-X | hardcover | $74.95
ISBN 0-8166-3406-8 | paperback | $24.95
Electronic Mediations Series, volume 13

Thomas Foster traces the transformation of cyberpunk from a literary
movement into a multimedia cultural phenomenon. He examines how cyberpunk
defined a framework for thinking about the cultural implications of new
technologies�a framework flexible enough to incorporate issues of gender,
queer sexualities, and ethnic and racial differences as well as developments
in nationalist models of citizenship and global economic flows.

Beginning with William Gibson's paradigmatic text Neuromancer and continuing
through the works of Maureen McHugh, Melissa Scott, Neal Stephenson, Greg
Egan, and Ken MacLeod, Foster measures cyberpunk's reach into social and
philosophical movements, commercial art, comic books, film, and music video.
