comments
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__
