DECIDER (experimental sound art)

But first, Zoolon’s thoughts on wasps and spiders! Wasps set out to terrify best they can I think. Spiders don’t, they just terrify the terrified, they can’t help it. In my studio this morning there was a wasp attacking a window and a spider looking a bit down about life fixed to the wall. It,

BUSKING IN BERLIN (a lyric)

BUSKING IN BERLIN (a lyric) Storm clouds on the horizon, No red sky tonight, The wind blows away the magic, Of a starry, starry night.   Melissa cries for Candy, Candy dreams of John, John is suicidal, On how it all went wrong.   Larry plays the old guitar, Kate the mandolin, And Finn plays

Here’s the link to the music, hope you enjoy it;   https://soundcloud.com/zoolon/poem

THE SEARCH FOR SILENCE

There is no such thing as silence I know that The dictionary tells lies Once I locked myself in a lead coffin (might or might not have been lead) After 4, maybe 5 minutes I realized I could hear my heart beat My clothes rustle Even cotton shirts rustle when locked in too long They
