Phantom Time

Give regard to arts unbound by time and place.

These are universal visions and sounds. When these are altogether absent from contemporary culture, there is only trouble, dissolution, and waste.  But one sees, one continues forward.

Curious, If True II

"So lacking in moral reason are they, that art is mere decoration and nature offers nothing more than occasions for self-indulgence."

Certainly no one would desire to agree with such an assessment.  Observation, nonetheless, lends difficulty to the act of devising argument to the contrary.

Dispatch from Afar

Where there is subtlety, transfix the attention.

What remains of the idea of the sublime depends upon such awareness, lifted by imagination.

Aesthetic Perspective

Art is not life, but life engaged with art sustains strength and resilience of attitude.

Art, and most certainly, to my mind, the art of sound, elevates awareness. It ultimately intensifies perception, reinforces critical reason, and reveals the reality behind the appearances of things that offers insights into the human condition.

Art spurs creative consciousness, and suggests the ways and means by which one may move beyond the shallow and mundane spectacle that falsely represents what life has to offer. This brings about a state of being capable of grasping what is, one that makes it possible to bring about what can be.

It has become necessary to think beyond present-day experience in every cultural context.

At issue is the suppression of free expression and individual effort, and the dawning idea that the multicultural climate is being used as a tool to eliminate the existence of any common culture in order to consolidate ideological control of social and economic systems. It is against any and all such abominable developments that one has a duty to rebel, first as a free human being, and beyond this responsibility as any sort of visionary artist.

Consciousness, perception, thought, action.

Give form to thought, shape to significance, sense to sound.

Exercise I

Visualize sound.

Reverse the process, by combining sounds suggestive of the visual.

Note: abstract, static visuals suggest sonic possibilities that may differ from direct perception of environmental atmospheres. This reflects the sensibilities of any artist, to one degree or another.
