about

traveling, as everyone know who travels, involves much seemingly motionless waiting in which mental traveling turns about the utopia within. this album of improvisations recorded in the temporary digs while waiting for news got ghosted and guest-hosted by the rumblies of the trams running outside the window, as anyone with good headphones or playback system will be able to detect. the idea of the tram (traum) turns out to be the perfect metaphor. the tram (traum) has a track but the people inside the tram (traum) spill over into solitary lives and unknown destinations distracted luckily by any amor fati they might have. the album is quite literally one sitting with a few edits. I recorded these and then I recorded others and after I post this I will get back to work. thanks for the support.

Fragment, July 18, 2017

the dead live on in the fingers, search word for type-face, sunders, those greys, may-care-devils, derailed, those spoken for, unspeaking, speak then your peace, or forever hold up the now, be brittle, both. the living die ever onward, in the fingers, the untold tale blossoms callous, you work for whatever, you love for each-ever, you, for every broken string, sing, worth it all, where worth strips down to, tell me, fingers, there is no, whatsoever.
