Levinas in brief http://www.alansondheim.org/ukufourth1.mp3 http://www.alansondheim.org/ukufourth2.mp3 ukulele with 25% pitch lowering the speed remains the same. i'm fascinated by the 'lumbering' quality of the results. it's as if one projects massivity onto the apparent materiality of the instrument - strings as thick ropes, etc. most of the harmony is lost or appears hazy. physical projection i assume is _always_ present in listening. it's strongly here. who is writing about this? not even Helmholtz. it's as if sound appears disconnected from mass, just as philosophy appears disconnected from health. here is a reversal then dedicated to Levinas' existence and existents. enjoy.
