“This is right out of the [Ornette] Coleman dynasty, this is the sound of tomorrow, the sound of the Atlas missile, the sound of the Pioneer radio blip from outer space. It is beyond, searching and probing and full of the blood tingling excitement of a jet taking off, or when a bathesphere records the sound of subterranean inhabitants several miles down on the floor of the deepest trench.”

Ron Eyre, Notes for Outward bound by the Eric Dolphy Quintet.

In some styles of music, such as noise music, the attention given to the manipulation of these variables [sound distortions and filters] is on an equal, perhaps even higher footing than those of pitch, duration and timbre when it comes to the way the music is composed and appreciated. There’s no reason to think them somehow inherently subordinate or secondary to more traditional musical variables.

When I’m kayaking off the Washington coast, and especially up in Canada off Vancouver Island, I see a lot of sea otters - it is one of my favourite things. In the places where there are a lot of them, they do this amazing thing called a sea otter raft where they float on their backs and hold hands. Sometimes there are gigantic rafts of hundreds of sea otters all holding hands and floating on their backs together.

My professor handled this pot as well as other pieces I had brought for a workshop, and said, “your body is a library.” I was startled by the accuracy and poetry of his observation and rewrite these words often, especially before I teach, to remind myself of the heritage of hanji that has become a part of me.

Una giuliva bischeraggine animava le facce di tutti; le donne, come si grattassero un acne, o con gesti di bertucce cui sia data tra mano alcuna cacaruetta, si davan la cipria a ogni piatto: mangiavano minestrone e matita. E tutti speravano, speravano, giulivi. Ed erano pieni di fiducia. Oppure, autorevoli, tacevano. A tavolino; petto in fuori, busto eretto; incartonati nell’arnese d’amido dello smoking quasi nel cerotto e nel turgore supremo della certezza e della realtà biologica.

Ma lo stato era già sovraccarico di monumenti, antichi e moderni, e la società archeologica per gli studi pre-colombiani non gli dava pace, arrivando a procurargli fino a dodici e quindici monoliti alla settimana, e tombe di re Incas, che venivano accolti, dai baffi del Ministro della Istruzione, con la stessa gioia che i trovatelli in un brefotrofio senza fondi.

La moda o anzi manía dei bagni di sole (1920-1940) ha talora ecceduto i limiti del buon senso. E dal bagno di sole esci stupido.
