about

Delta Blip

Born in a wave and crystallized in a bit.

An alloy of Construction & Destruction and Thesis Sahib..

Sea-spit sonics rich with digital silt, set in a spectral age to a jetsam beat.

Track Name: Certain Images
fire wheels wire fire
fans of fire and other unnatural inventions
sounds of wheels and other unnatural inventions
so clever
we could share the warmth of our computers

hardy arc over the earth
a delicate satellite
sending certain images
uncertainly back
a celestial capstan
a fulcrum of fact
each beamed-back image
already a fact
all the dead originals
all the mountains of trash
all the hills they become
grown over with grass
grown over with grass

same delicate satellite
same unnatural invention
same delicate satellite
onward same invention
onward same invention
Track Name: Iterations
i have been toiling at machines again
but now i’m thinking
have they been toiling at me
and now i’m thinking
all these iterations of the self

who is the primary agent
who is the sh-sh-sh-sh-shaker of whom
and who moves
at whose bidding
who moves who moves who moves

staring at the screen again
staring at your face and then
you see me and i see me
through you

staring at the screen again
staring at your face and then
you see me and i see me
through you

[answering machine message]
Track Name: Speak Listen Decay
every day at the helm of the incantation
every day speak listen decay
torquing through texts and recitations
chanting rapid placid rapt fugued

all these fractals these turbulent sames
likenesses and mimes and recapitulates
give me the hard stuff give me the hard stuff give me the
take it away

up the river like we always knew we’d have to
up the river in a phantasm of vox hues
chanting rapid placid rapt fugued

every day in the chamber of exaltation
every day speak listen decay
snagging my sleeves in the trenches of song
chanting rabid placid rapt fugued

reverent descants
more turbulent sames
faithful pollutions that wax and wane and
give me the hard stuff give me the hard stuff give me the hard stuff
take it away
Track Name: Spooky Action
this spooky action at a distance
get me back to the sea
i seek not a binary fleet
but to settle in the alluvial
by the sea

i seek the spectral and the cast-off
and that which gets sloughed
off the finishing edge

four alarms went off in my head and i discarded
each
one

tell me i’m a discrete being and
lead me back to the sea
tell me i’m a discrete being and
lead me back to the sea
Track Name: Tactician
champing at the end of some common bit
trying to get out under and on with it

fold up the screed don’t heed the précis
quick release apostasy

see the tactician straddle the fray
dazzle suspended
keep tumult at bay
sic to a fixed point
stay

but it’s sound down here in the valley amongst
you us
writ large on a wall in a spectral age font

et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne comme ça
et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne comme ça
et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne comme ça
et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne et ça sonne comme ça
