Vast was performed live on stillstream.com November 26, 2013. Done using midi controller, Linux and personal field recordings. Music fashioned using the buddhalizer --a virtual extension of my imagination.
Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.
- Philip Massinger, a biographical essay in The Sacred Wood (1920)
"VibeWaves" consists of two mixes of early Mystified noise/drone tracks. The first set is "Dark Vibes". The second is called "Light Vibes". I chose these pieces because I found that they conveyed a "vibe", or mood, even though they were quite minimal. The original tracks appeared on various cdr, cassette and netreleases many years ago.
A little while ago, not much more than a few days ago, I was a child who went about in a world of colors, of hard and tangible forms. Everything was mysterious and something was hidden, guessing what it was was a game for me. If you knew how terrible it is to know suddenly, as if a bolt of lightning elucidated the earth. Now I live in a painful planet, transparent as ice; but it is as if I had learned everything at once in seconds.
- Frida Kahlo, Letter to Alejandro Gómez Arias, (29 September 1926)
