Week 2 1/14/18

The typical perspective on music is that it is a linear form, in linear time.



Instead, imagine time, and thus composition of sound, as occurring in expanding cycles.

Week 1 1/7/18

Nikola Tesla observed the essential nature of "energy, frequency, and vibration" in reality.


Additionally, Tesla encouraged inquiry into "non-physical phenomena".  Examine such observations as they relate to "music" etc., but beyond this, in relation to auditory perception generally, and to non-musical constructions and their effects.

Week 52 12/31/17

Creative life demands more than role-playing and emotional desire.


What is necessary is the bringing of fire, and light, regardless of risk and sacrifice.

Week 50 12/17/17

To any artist, I would say, "Refuse to be manipulated".


Do not be a victim. Accept responsibility. Act independently, by your own judgement.

Week 49 12/10/17

Certain things must be done.  Many are mundane.


The issue is the application of music to social and cultural situations in which music, "as we know it", is not optimal. This is always the case when music demands the listener's full attention, and, though it is less intrusive when it simply invites attention, it may still become a distraction.

Reading, thinking, conversation, and things of this nature do not benefit from distractions, and sound developed and expressed for these scenarios must be conducive to being relaxed, yet alert.  

Brian Eno's ambient music develops rarefied musical events to evoke this stage of consciousness; I have been developing, over the past decade, a means to a singular, and to the extent possible, an over-arching, non-musical, atmospheric and environment effect with disparate implications.

To paraphrase Poe, it is a total effect designed as a singular, overarching expression, suitable for the aforementioned occasions, and for the expansion of consciousness.  Yet, as I have since verified in academic practice, it has additional, peculiar effects, such as allowing, thus increasing, individual focus of attention on other activities, and providing extended relief from such challenges as ADHD.  

While not intentional, this is nonetheless a proven fact, verified by objective results, and a welcome artistic development, with possible applications to PTSD as well.  This necessitates continuing experimentation, study, and review.

Week 48 12/2/17

Invention and discovery demand trial, assessment, and verification.


Experimentation allows risk, while the introduction of something entirely new, for an entirely new purpose, requires caution.

Terms must be defined, understanding assured, before experience becomes clear, as it will in the course of the coming creative dynamic and presentation.  To listen will be to hear with new ears.
