    Die Welt besteht aus geheimen Verknüpfungen

remanence
What price
What cost incoherence?
We touch
Like fading
Dreams erase the shame
Meet in cool blue light
Under swollen moons
& feverish stars

very nicely integrated site, easy to listen to a variety of musicians that sauceruney tipped me to for hosting music. For now, I've put up two tracks: Werewolf Erotica from Teotwawki and rOUndoUT from Unknown Artist ep (to see how long the files take to go live,) and have downloaded a number of songs to check out later after work

    wu's notes

the unquiet mind album is complete, as the tracks go. over the last six weeks kitty & i have been working on this project, and currently she's working on the album art

this project, more than anything that came before, helped me fine-tune digitrash's capabilities and has helped me go from working with samples alone to writing segments and pieces of music

none of this would have been possible without kitty, who's understanding of harmonics and truly impressive dragon voice gives unquiet mind an edge
or any of the other musicians and vocalists involved. the ouranic barabaric that reverend gabriel & I are chanting before ezekiel x's sermon during the human egregore was probably the most difficult requestI'd made of any of the performers, but the lamau's three minute
long didgeridoo piece that opens T.E.O.T.W.A.W.K.I. was an incredible performance to just witness. (circular breathing is hard)

the rev also performed an integral part of The Human Export using this really odd two-stringed instrument that's kinda turkish but modified - it's got a gourd
at the bottom of the neck, with a big horn sticking out of the gourd, & the rev played it by bouncing this wooden banger off the strings. he's playing it in Endless Neon Daymare as well

august k didn't add any cow bells this time, but he did contribute his voice on Word ObscuReveal Dreams
with the rev, and introduces the idea of drunken raged turned murderous in Asymmetrical Synchronicity

ben nothing also helped, laying down sounds, tracks, and vocals as needed - that's him screaming "artist unknown" with kitty in You: Artist Unknown, and that's his unfreaking believable guitar work in EvolvEmbrac, even if it is mangled and torn. his bass work fills out T.E.O.T.W.A.W.K.I., for example, was done to order, on a whim, and couldn't have worked better
Itinerant Transmission was me trying to make the loudest sound I could imagine, thinking about the hounds of tindalos coming for a pack of werewolves while they're in the middle of taunting their dinner with lycanthropy
Knowledge Needs Only Wisdom, This Corporate Republic and FIN the Pisces Age contain the central ideas - we the people, we're the we, we're the were...
we're all changing - Werewolf Erotica is sculpted so that it can help the listener become more aware of inaudible frequencies (and there's an even higher frequency mix not online) and the same technique is on the ufo abduction repressed memory track OFficial fantasy (admittedly inspired by dream theater's metropolis 2)

more to come.

    a huge thanks to everyone involved with the project, and to those who were there for the album's debut

        here it comes

    we released the album last night at midnight, a scant few hours after finishing the tracks, playing it for a packed costumed front room

    over the next few hours I'll be prepping the files and expect to have them all available before the polls open in the morning

    Once the files are up, expect details and album art to follow, as well as several remixes once we're finished expanding Digitrash Studios
