“To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.” (an epigraph to chapter 3 of “The Lathe Of Heaven” by Ursula K. Le Guin.)

While i’m never short of ideas, both aural and visual, i’ve always found that a positivist approach rarely results in art I really feel like owning. The tracks on “ITACIDTWATQ” were originally developed as the audio component of a live AV performance. The equanimity with which I applied these sounds to each other and to vision encouraged a constant evolution of both sound and image. Trying to nail all this down to a form that I can then retire seems antithetical to an open evolutionary work. I have been mixing this material for 4 months now, and it sounds different every time I hear it, but it is time I set this iteration free to play with you. This is a dynamic snapshot that will allow you to paint your own picture.

A prescription for the enhancement of oneirological pursuits, be it art, reading, sleep, or a free three-quarter hour meditation in an unlit space. It evolves and so will you.

To go is to return.
