in a darkened room, sitting on the floor, roden in chair at a table faced with small tinkery equipment.

the pop sounds almost make a beat – waving sounds, airplane??? louder than usual. static like ocean (sounds) arms crossed at wrists, jaw in hand – the tunes now show rhythm or is it melody? death metal reverb????

einsturzend neuebauten…….  funny constant in waves–why do i hear it that way? like blood pounding–or at least elemental and of-in the body

weird laconic hawaiian music on a record :: two notes are half radio tuning sounds—overriding clarion–horn, accordion keys??

now it (underneath noise) begins again like a return of the motif in western classical music____ deeper maybe beethoven 5-ey, maybe a coda?

serious now sweet—dance music, melancholic + reflective: a song!!! singing–like a siren or mystic or angel___a chorus, a woman’s reverie is it steve???

sounds like moon piece with low moan chorus

the reveries go back and forth–ambiguous contemplations holding in mouth/lips clattering—wires and microphone manipulated by left hand under table

in plain view
