"Errors, like Straws, upon the Surface flow;
He who would search for Pearls must dive below."

-- I woke up in the middle of the night with 95db of noise
outside and result of very soft music and very loud outside
noise - and our place was noise --

now however i see noise as an _accompaniment_ to my music, the
more _interference_ the more i rise to the occasion, the
necessity of ensuring the instrumental _presence_ flattened and
revived in the midst of unbelievable _chaos_ for which there is
no answer but to _succumb_ and internalize a _violence_ which
results in the fall of empires but makes for good _listening_ as
the _remnants_ of _classicism_ _collapse_

noise - and we all fall down --
