Week 15 4/7/19

Mythology and folklore speak of music as a magical force.

When music is central to tales of the strange and paranormal, attempts to evoke its nature falter. It is invariably described as ethereal, beautiful, mystical... and altogether unlike anything that would fit a modern definition of "music". It defies remembering, and thus cannot be replicated, leaving only a deep, lasting impression of high strangeness.

Recognizing this distinction, Black Mountain School strives to create sonic atmospheres that evoke the uncanny and otherworldly perspectives of art and imagination.

Week 14 4/7/19

Think beyond beginning and end.

Look past the commonplace narrative and the linear chain of events.  What are signs and signals? What are symbols?

Allow a perspective of experience that is objective as well as personal and subjective.

Week 13 3/31/19

Expanded consciousness and enhanced perception suggest transcendence.

Here envision difficult efforts, labor and risk, to rise above the mundane, the political, the mere material. What is necessary to ascend to understanding?  Where and when do we begin?

Week 11 3/17/19

Direct energy, frequency and vibration toward balance and movement.

These are sounds not limited by linear temporal perception; the desired outcome is expansion. 

Compare, at this far distance, to expressive possibilities of Zaum and its linguistic metaphysics. It is not difficult to do so, and without graceless pretension it is revealing.

Week 10 3/10/19

Where perspectives are shallow, chaos is apparent.

This is failure to perceive common forces in motion, their origins, and the greater design.  Who would encourage this? Why would this be desirable?

Experiments are successful only insofar as they can be replicated.

Week 9 3/3/19

What is the way of sound?

Every element of the surroundings resonates with energy, vibration, and frequency.  This is a function of change, expansion, and consciousness.
