Voice, mouth, sense, center, story, memory, song, noise, body. Utterances and loops of language morphing into each other and into mutable, knotty, sound matter. The story is told but always elusive. The voice is high pitched, broken, untrained, fearless. The sense is right in the center of the phrase, so much in your face that you stop noticing it. The memory is shattered, solarized, partly erased, partly distorted. The noise is in the body. Somewhere, somebody sings. The instrument is made of wood, rubber, bee-wax. The computer is on the side. The software has been fallaciously programmed. A microphone is needed.
