The Groove / Fun With Adjectives!
« on: December 04, 2011, 02:49:44 AM »
So, I've just picked up the djembe, and I've also begun producing techno. My counter - part on the techo project is a friend of mine who just happened to own the ableton suite a midi controller, a drum pad and the APC 40 itself. The purpose of this post is twofold: I want to describe the sound i'm going for, and list some of the bands that form our core influence, and then ask yall if you think I should add anything else in to the pot, or remove elements.
Adjectives of our techno sound:
recursion and reversal
~130 BMP
Bands that infuence our sound.
Aphex Twin.
Boards of Canada.
Ed Rush & Optical.
The Orb.
Any Ideas? I'll upload my song once I trim it down to an acceptible size. But I'm anxious to hear yalls take on it.... in other words, what would be your favorite sound and how that might turn out.

While I tacitly agree to your preconditions to experience these 4 dimensions with my 6 senses along an 8 fold path in spite of 5 noble truths and a trinity of divinity I also explicity deny the system its acceptable losses, collateral damage, and the sum total of all suffering. My beginingless end; and of itself is, was and will be suffecient and complete Ineffeibly, Irrevocably, and Irrefutably.
I hearby declare your omnicence, omnipresence and omnibenevolance commdites of Man. I am Frankenstien's monster hellbent on creating the largest, most cahcophonous and dissonent peace that has never been.
The bird has left the cage.
P.S. I demand a detailed receipt for all aformentioned suffering, and I expect a full refund.

The Mountain / The Void

So, on many a trip to the other side and back, really anytime in my life when I've had a limnial experience, enthogenically created or not I come back to the same dilemma... It seems that there is this impregnable void that separates subject from object, perciever from percieved; and keeps opposites apart. It is possible to percieve its absence, but not the thing iself.... Could that be God?

There are times that I have spent playing with polar opposites, and trying to mediate down to a point where the opposites converge. No matter how much conceptualization you could do to make life = death, heaven = hell. peace = war, there is always a space that keeps the opposites from touching. In this action a ballet ensues wherby the universe unfolds. The fractals that appear and return to this void are perfect and absolute while representing chaos. The infinite nature of creation in a probablisitc universe seems to happen in a determined and ordely fashion.

There are three traits that I think qualify a being as "God"
1. Omnicience
2. Omnipresence
3. Omnibenevolence.

In other words, all knowing, part of everything, and all good.
I think the void fits these criteria. The Void is omnicient, every concept that touches it is absorbed. It is omnipresent becasue no matter what object you see in the world can't not be a part of it. Everything that is touched by the Void exists; The Void leaving its mark like afingerprint, everything that the Void is has the same patterns; clusters of galaxies seem to evolve over millions of years the same way that arteries take shape in a body, limbs of a tree, Salmon migration patterns, etc. The micro is in the macro; but the micro will never be the macro. There will always a differentiator, keeping the two from becoming one. The benovlance is where its gets tricky. The Void is not necesarily benevolant per se, its more of a chaotic neutral alignment. The Void only ensures that creation continues and progresses, but the void itself has no agenda. It takes a human moral judgement as to whehter prgoression and growth are necesairly "good" things.

So, Thoughts?

The Mountain / My annual rant.

Hiya old friends. I've sorta dropped off the radar and all lately, but I thought I'd pop in and say high, and take this opportunity to babble incessantly about quasi - meaningful things, in no particular order.

I've been thinking a lot about the world lately, and once again I'm in a transitional phase in my life. I've graduated college. I'm getting married in July. I'm joining the work force temporarily until my love and I shove off to join the Peace Corps. Upon my return, four years of education stand between me and a wellspring miracles until the day of my death.

Never before in my life has my path been so determined, yet never in my life have I felt so free. Choosing my mate has given me a sense of joy that I never knew. Together we learned that there was a price to pay for unconditional love. To paraphrase Geddy Lee, we both paid the price, but never counted the cost. Loving someone unconditionally is one of the greatest sacrifices a person can make. And fortunately for me has paid off. I never knew life could be so fufilling until I gave up half of it to share with another.

Love is as much an embrace as it is letting go. When 2 become 1 the universe unfolds. Yet at the same time, ever since I truly fell in love and gave up the idea of ever loving another is what empowered me to achive the desires of my ego.

. . . SO what is it that my ego wants? Peace, Justice, Compassion, Freedom, Liberty, Equality, Growth and Wealth of Spirit for all living things. I grapple with how to best achieve these things, but it is my greatest desire to leave this earth quantitatively better off in these arenas than they were before I entered this earth.

--- I have a lot more to say (I've got a lot of catching up to do) but I'm sleepy. I hope that this autobiographical rant gives some of you some InSight into my life, and at best makes you feel less alone.

Never forget to love.

Arjuna out.
