Week 42 10/21/18

Upon close observation, nothing is "ordinary".


Listen, hear, then perceive sound in a different way, without falsification of subjectivity.

Week 41 10/14/18

Creativity is often directed by silent, powerful forces.


These influences are interwoven with the arc of history. They are always present, and waiting to be made manifest through individual ideas and actions.

Week 39 9/30/18

Perceive actively, with all the senses.


One may look and not see, just as one may hear but not listen.


Sunday, September 23, 2018

Week 38 9/21/18

Question.  Understand.  Explore.  Know.


All things rise, fall, and ultimately move forward.

Sunday, September 16, 2018

Week 37 9/16/18

Allow impressions of the surroundings to form.



Compose fields of sound accordingly. These are atmospherics, owing little to "music".

Sunday, September 09, 2018

Week 36 9/9/18

Many artists are doing extraordinary work, yet much remains unseen and unheard.


Access is narrowly focused in terms of social and cultural interests. This will change.

Sunday, September 02, 2018

Week 35 9/2/18

Culture involves choice.  To know, or not to know.


This is why culture may divide as well as unite.

Sunday, August 26, 2018

Week 34 8/26/18

Reject programming.


It is difficult to break away from what one is accustomed to hearing.  Listen critically.

Week 32 8/12/18

Atmosphere, time, and place.


What you hear are impressions imbued with meaning.

Sunday, August 05, 2018

Week 31 8/5/18

Disengage from the false and contrived.


Perceive without subjectivity. How would this enhance cognizance of what is genuine and true?

To listen is to concentrate, to hear is to expand the perception. There is always more to know.


Sunday, July 29, 2018

Week 30 7/29/18

Form and Function.


The art of sound transcends communication of emotion and idea, as it transcends evocation of physical movement.  Nor are these the limits of "music", but merely common, narrow expectations.

What do expanded thinking and broader perception suggest?

Sunday, July 22, 2018

Sunday, July 15, 2018

Week 28 7/15/18

Expand the field of perception, in thinking, in creating.


Effect change in the environment. Alter the dynamic of the moment.

Sunday, July 08, 2018

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.

Week 24 6/17/18

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.


Sunday, June 10, 2018

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.

Sunday, June 03, 2018

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.



Sunday, May 27, 2018

Week 21 5/27/18

A creator must have a dynamic perspective.


The inevitability of change demands recognition of opportunities.

Sunday, May 20, 2018

Week 20 5/20/18

Have you heard the term "avant-garde" lately?


Such is the unfortunate nature of a complacent culture, lacking in foresight and vision.  Nonetheless, one moves, and moves forward.


Sunday, May 13, 2018

Week 19 5/13/18

Some simply accept.


Others expect more, desire more, and do more. They see, they listen, and hear. They create.
