Week 27 7/8/18

The creative process exists in a continuum of events.

One thing may be a coincidence, and one thing may not be, and intentional. The process continues in motion, and remains so.

More often than not, the artist, at least, must transcend culture.

It is an infantile mistake to conflate high degrees of specialized knowledge with moral reason. The source and origin of critical, creative vision lies far beyond such common perspectives.

Week 23 6/10/18

In listening, and hearing, perceive source and origin without predetermined perspective.

This is accomplished without imposition of attitude or prejudice. One does not project emotion or idea, apprehending, instead, direct impression.  Develop the aural composition accordingly, to the extent possible, and the formation of atmosphere and art come about with clarity.

This is merely an ideal to be approached, rather than a superficial goal or ultimate objective.

Week 22 6/3/18

It is a curious thing to create something markedly different from previous forms, if similar in nature.

Research tone poems, Erik Satie, Debussy, Cage, Eno, yet move continuously away from both "music" and "noise". The aural aesthetic remains, while musical paradigms diminish.

Those who are said to have heard music in paranormal or "enchanted" settings describe a kind of enigmatic impression of beautiful sounds that cannot be recollected or re-created in musical terms.

Such impressions may lend themselves to altered perceptual awareness, changes in attention, emotional perspective, and cognitive acuity, or even elevated states of consciousness.
