Not All Things Are Instantaneous

Listen and hear, bring all the senses to bear, everywhere at once.

Perceive, and become cognizant of surrounding forces, vast and impenetrable.

Vision and Danger

Whatever enters consciousness is chosen, or it is imposed.

Listen and hear. Be told what to think. One or the other. Never both.

Word, Sound, Sword

A hundred years pass, and the West remains burdened by failed nineteenth-century ideas.

Yet it is in works of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that the full Voice of Reason is raised, and it remains in the cultural artifacts of the period that speak with equal and essential power in the modern perspective today.

The noise of the mob drowns it out, only to drown in the mediocrity it glorifies. Collective absurdity, for such it is, produces nothing, impedes progress, and silences free thought.

Its center remains the guillotine.

In precincts where modern genius yet thrives, it is understood that there are no problems for which solutions do not already exist.  And all the arts, in concrete and abstract forms, are gathering force.

Art is Dead

Again and again, observe the instances in which the cultural norms are thrust upon the individual.

Not everything called by the name art is art in fact and being.

Where there is no more individual expression, but only that approved and allowed by collective forces intent upon "controlling" culture, art is indeed dead.  And it must, as a power, as an abstract, aesthetic ideal, and as a principle, be resurrected.

To Hear Oneself Think

Static may be loud, but it changes little.

A culture overwhelmed and burdened by noise is incapable of change; it stagnates, and decays. The same is true of individual experience.

These works are dedicated to combat the impress of negative forces against individual freedom.

Listening, Advancement

Understanding sound beyond music, composition advances.

Set aside concerns with time and space, meter, rhythm, and melody: perceive the unfolding of reality

Observe the predictability of collective action and expression.

Consider instead the singular dynamic of the personal, individual perspective in action. Here may be found focused and sustained creative progress, in opposition to brief obsessions consumed by one crisis after another, none of which are ever resolved.
