Dreamed Sound

"Sounds have a way of reminding you of something...." "Each sound must have its own life.  Express the inner generative power of its being." "Each sonic image....opens a world of its own." "Have you ever noticed how there is no background noise to a dreamed sound? Perfect signal to noise ratio." --Pauline Oliveros

The Absence of Silence

Waves of memory shake my bones The skeleton within me recalls what once was The city around me smiles in recognition My bones are a graveyard of sound where there might be silence --Quin de la Mer, 2017

For me, Auto-Cosmology... Continue Reading →

Eternal Verities
